Busiest Week Ever

RR112219 ICSENov. 22, 2019 – This was one of the busiest weeks in recent memory. The week started off with the announcement that Rock Products' parent company SEMCO Publishing had acquired the assets of Aggregates Manager magazine, effectively creating the aggregates industry's most powerful media enterprise. This is big news, and as that merger evolves, you will learn more about what it means for aggregates producers and manufacturers. The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association held its fall legislative conference, which I attended, and it was very successful, with many important speakers and hundreds of trips to Capitol Hill to lobby lawmakers. To top it off, the 38th International Cement Seminar & Exhibition was held Nov. 19-21 in Atlanta at the Cobb Galleria Center. Yep, I was there too. The show – produced by SEMCO – was an unqualified success. The show included a field trip to Argos USA's Atlanta grinding facility (see picture: that's me on site.) Next week may be quieter, but the fun has just begun. Comments? This email address is being protected from spambots.
