CIM World of Concrete auction sustains record-take streak.
The National Steering Committee (NSC) for the Concrete Industry Hanagement (CIM) program raised more than $615,000 in gross revenue at its seventh annual auction, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center early last month during World of Concrete.
"The 2013 auction equated our highest gross proceeds total ever," affirms CIM Auction Committee Chairman Mike Phi[ipps (Cemex). "This is a great example of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program. We had a record number of donated items and attendees at the Auction that helped make this year's event a huge success."
The signature item this year was a Mack Granite concrete truck chassis with a McNeitus 11-cu.-yd. concrete mixer donated by Mack Trucks, Inc. and McNeitus Cos. The winning bidder was Tim Ashley of CLovis Concrete in New Mexico.
"We are very pleased with how everyone stepped up to donate and bid on the great auction items and support the CIM program," adds Philipps. "The money raiSed wiLL benefit the NSC and support the current CIM program as weLL as heLp fund future program expansion."
"We were fortunate to have the incredible support of the WorLd of Concrete (WOC) Show Management, Hantey Wood PubLications and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers," said CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gattagher. "We thank the many companies such as McNeitus Companies, Inc., Mack Trucks, Inc., Somero Enterprises, and the numerous companies that donated items to the Auction to make it a complete success."
