OTTAWA, Canada: Giatec Scientific, the market leader of revolutionary concrete testing equipment, today announced it has partnered with Redi-Mix, LLC (“Redi-Mix”), a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR), a leading supplier of concrete and aggregates for large-scale commercial, residential and infrastructure projects to use Giatec’s SmartRock® Plus solution in the North Texas market. U.S. Concrete has already successfully implemented the SmartRock® Plus solution in the San Francisco Bay market.
SmartRock® Plus is a value-added solution for ready-mixed concrete producers which leverages Giatec’s leading wireless concrete sensor for monitoring temperature and strength. The maturity method for determining strength of concrete without breaking concrete cylinders is becoming increasingly popular across North America but requires a prior calibration of the mix. SmartRock® Plus is the only solution available that allows for the customers of ready-mix producers to select their desired mix calibrations through the SmartRock® Plus app and share critical, real-time data with all project stakeholders. SmartRock® Plus now serves dozens of markets in North America.
“The demand for our SmartRock® Plus solution is growing as contractors are looking for the simplest way to get this critical data,” says Sarah McGuire, Director of Sales for Giatec. “We are honored to have a premier company like Redi-Mix champion and succeed with our technology.”
Using the SmartRock® Plus solution, ready-mixed concrete producers and their clients have reduced reliance on cylinder break tests, have helped clients save days, even weeks off project schedules and have increased the profitability of their pours by up to 20%.
Redi-Mix is always at the forefront of concrete technology. Leveraging Giatec’s revolutionary testing equipment will help our clients save time and money, making it easier for contractors to get the job done.
