Concrete is the second most consumed product on earth, after water. Yet, by comparison, concrete construction represents millions of more jobs and a much greater economic return than water. In fact, sustainable water projects rely heavily on concrete for storage, distribution, and reclamation.
–There are nearly 3 tons (approx. 1.6-cubic yards) of concrete produced each year for every human on the planet, making it the most used man-made product in the world. Concrete production and concrete construction have an impact on almost every facet of human existence, particularly in developed nations.
–Concrete usage is two-times more than wood, steel, plastic, and aluminum combined. When you consider it, there are not many structures that don’t include some type of cement-based building product.
All of this concrete is mixed in some type of a machine and have the great privilege to be the people who bring these important machines to market.
