Giatec Expands Smart Concrete Solution into Texas with Redi-Mix

Giatec Scientific, a manufacturer of revolutionary concrete testing equipment, announced it has partnered with Redi-Mix, LLC (“Redi-Mix”), a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc., a 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 across North America.
