28 • February 2019 BRIEFS PRODUCERS PRODUCERS Eagle Roofing Products marks a milestone in concrete tile production and innovation this year. Headquartered in Rialto, Calif., the company has been family owned and operated since its 1989 founding by Robert Burlingame. Over the course of 30 years and counting, the producer has grown from a small business with one high-pressure extrusion machine and five employees to the largest domestically owned concrete roof tile operator, with four plants and a payroll of 700. "We are celebrating our 30th anniversary by recognizing the amazing commitment of our team members and unrelenting support of our builder, roofing contractor, distributor and design professional customers," says Vice President of Sales & Marketing John Camp- bell. "Customers can expect new, innovative products to be launched throughout 2019 and, in order to ensure another 30 years of success, we will be refocusing our sales and marketing efforts on expanding the concrete roof tile market throughout North America." The company attributes its success to a philosophy that revolves around growing personal relationships, he adds: Each and every employee performs his or her role with the singular goal of customer service, net- ting Eagle Roofing Products an unmatched reputation for quality and satisfaction. Har- vesting customer relationships has equipped the producer to develop innovative roofing solutions to meet specific needs. Irving Materials Inc. is adopting Carbon- Cure Technologies' carbon dioxide recycling technology in 15 ready mixed concrete plants across its home state of Indiana, plus Ken- tucky and Tennessee. On average, every cubic yard of concrete imi produces with the Car- bonCure process will embody 25 lbs. of CO 2 . As doses of post-industrial CO 2 are injected into fresh mixes, the greenhouse gas undergoes a mineralization phase imparting additional compressive strength. "imi Concrete has been at the forefront of concrete innovation, including development of the front discharge concrete mixer that is now an industry staple," says imi North Division President Bob Haldrup. "CarbonCure fits within our vision to lead our industry with forward-thinking processes that provide better products." The producer piloted the CarbonCure Technology at its Whiteland, Ind., plant in July 2017. After extensive testing of trial and normal production loads, it expanded Carbon- Cure process deployment to three additional plants in late 2018 and has scheduled injec- tion equipment installations at the remaining 11 operations early this year. Massachusetts precaster Shea Concrete Products recently assisted American Soci- ety of Civil Engineers–New Hampshire for the premier "Annual Engineers Day Conference," raising more than $10,500 for the ASCE-NH Annual Scholarship Awards initiative. Shea Concrete worked with the chapter on an agenda covering leadership, effective com- munication, and team building—topics that can often be overlooked in a field dominated by technical expertise, calculations, and con- struction drawings.
