CIM Holds Record-Breaking Auction At World of Concrete

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 – is thrilled to announce they raised more than $2.1 million in gross revenue at its annual auction, held in conjunction with the World of Concrete, on Wednesday, Jan. 18.

“Once again, we thank the concrete industry for their tremendous support for this record-breaking auction,” commented CIM Auction Committee Chairman Ben Robuck. “The auction results are indicative of the high value this industry places on the CIM program and the need for talented leaders in the industry. This year’s auction was an incredible success, both in terms of the value of donated items and the auction participants. In addition to a concrete mixer truck donated by Mack® Trucks, Inc. and McNeilus®, a truck-mounted concrete pump donated by Alliance Concrete Pumps and Papé Kenworth, a concrete mixer truck donated by Peterbilt Motors Company and Con-Tech Manufacturing and an S-485 Laser Screed® donated by Somero Enterprises, we had a multitude of items targeted specifically for the concrete industry.”

“Again this year, we had incredible support from the World of Concrete show management, Informa and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers,” said CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gallagher. “We’d like to thank the many companies and organizations that donated items that helped us set a record.”

In addition to the live auction, a silent auction was also held. This year CIM had record proceeds from the silent auction. Live and silent auction items included cement, fly ash, aggregate, concrete saws, drills, safety equipment, training sessions, reference books and software subscriptions, laptop computers, sports travel packages and golf and vacation travel packages and much more.
