Cemstone, the upper Midwest’s leader in high performance concrete, has been chosen as a recipient in the 2016 National Ready Mixed Concrete Association Excellence in Quality Awards competition. This is the sixth year Cemstone has received this award. The NRMCA’s Producer Excellence in Quality Award recognizes the commitment to quality initiatives of ready mixed concrete producer members.

We are pleased that our efforts are continually recognized by our national organization. This award helps to showcase Cemstone’s ready mixed concrete as the ideal, sustainable building material for almost every type of construction project.“– Lars Anderson, QA/QC Manager of Engineering Services
