Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute.

JVI, Inc. received the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute's Associate Member Award, recognizing a company's significant contribution to PCI and the precast concrete industry over a period of years. PCI's Board of Directors reviews nominations and determines the recipient of the award each year. JVI's strong and consistent support of the Institute and the PCI Foundation was noted in the nomination.

The company's president, Jim Voss, left his family business to launch what is now JVI in 1980. JVI originally focused on structural bearing pads used to cushion and support structural precast, prestressed concrete elements. It has since expanded to include new products such as slotted inserts, hidden connections, and shear alignment connectors. The company prides itself on "innovative problem-solving," preferring to be known for introducing new and better solutions that help to advance the industry rather than by how many products it provides.

For many years, JVI has been an active member of PCI, sitting on boards, joining committees, supporting events, being one of the first PCI Premier Partners, and cooking gourmet meals for thousands of PCI members through Concrete Chefs events. JVI's active membership in PCI has provided unique opportunities to collaborate with customers to find solutions to common industry challenges. "JVI could not have had the success we enjoy without a robust involvement in PCI," said Voss.
