Innovations shape our world, every day in many ways, and the staff at Heavy Equipment Guide want to acknowledge their importance in the world of construction-related equipment. As a result, we have created this new annual feature. Our goal is to illustrate the range and scope of advances, from earthmoving to paving, aggregates, lift, maintenance, training, wearables and others. These innovations offer advantages from doing the job faster, more accurately, more safely, more comfortably or more efficiently, to improving maintenance or providing a better ROI. The editors' selections are drawn from our coverage during the year. The selection was not always easy as there are many worthy innovations but we hope the diversity of the ones shown provide an appreciation of the vast amounts of time and money which manufacturers spend developing innovations, large and small, that make our lives better.

After a 40-year career with Lafarge in Eastern Canada, Bob Castle pondered what he would do in order to stay busy once he retired. Prior to retiring in 2002, he decided to purchase a small concrete company located in Brockville, Ontario. Thousand Islands Concrete (TIC) was not just any concrete company; TIC ran four Daffin volumetric concrete mixers to fulfill customer orders. Fortunate for Bob, he had experienced delivery personnel capable of maintaining the old, outdated mixers.
