The National Steering Committee (NSC) for the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program – a business intensive program that awards students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management – raised more than $1.1 million in gross revenue at its annual auction, held in conjunction with the World of Concrete on Wednesday, January 24.
"The 2018 World of Concrete Auction was our best ever!" commented Mike Philipps, CIM Auction Committee Chairman. "The results of this Auction are indicative of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program. We had a record in terms of the value of donated items and attendees at the Auction that helped make this year's event a tremendous success."
An addition to the list of industry items donated to the annual Auction this year was a 2018 T880S bridge formula truck with a 11-yard bridge formula rear discharge BridgeKing mixer. This vehicle was donated by Con-Tech Manufacturing, Inc. and Kenworth and Kenworth of Central Florida.
In addition to the live auction, a silent auction was also held. This year CIM had record proceeds from the silent auction. Auction items included cement, concrete saws, drills, mixers, vibrators, safety equipment, screeds, fibre transport systems, dust collectors, decorative concrete tools, water meters, pumps, generators, training sessions, reference books, laptop computers, sports travel packages and golf and vacation travel packages.
"We were blessed to have the incredible support of the World of Concrete show management, Informa and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers," said CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gallagher. "We thank the many companies such as McNeilus Companies, Inc., Mack Trucks, Inc., Con-Tech Manufacturing, Kenworth and Kenworth of Central Florida and the numerous companies that donated items to the Auction to make it a complete success."
