The truck-mounted 38M concrete pump donated by Alliance Concrete Pumps, NORCAL Kenworth, and Kenworth Truck Company becomes a signature item at the CIM’s Annual Auction that will be held at World of Concrete.

The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program—a business intensive program that awards students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management—is pleased to announce that a signature item for their annual auction at World of Concrete is a truck-mounted 38M concrete pump donated by Alliance Concrete Pumps, NORCAL Kenworth, and Kenworth Truck Company.

“We are very appreciative of the support from Alliance Concrete Pumps, NORCAL Kenworth, and Kenworth Truck Company,” said Ben Robuck, CIM Auction Committee Chairman. “Their support speaks volumes to their commitment to the concrete industry and the importance these leading companies place on the CIM program. This truck-mounted concrete pump will help ensure a successful CIM Auction at the 2022 World of Concrete.”

“Alliance Concrete Pumps is excited to donate their most popular boom pump model to the CIM auction,” said Clayton White, President and CEO, Alliance Concrete Pumps. “We are also very proud to be part of procuring young and up-and-coming talent for the concrete industry.”

About CIM
Receiving tremendous support from the concrete industry, the CIM program was the first of its kind in United States – a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management. Since its humble beginning, the CIM program has expanded and offered at Middle Tennessee State University, California State University, Chico, Texas State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and our newest program at South Dakota State University. Today, there are more than 1,500 graduates of the Concrete Industry Management program working in the industry.

The goal of the program is to produce broadly educated, articulate graduates grounded in basic construction management, who are knowledgeable of concrete technology and techniques and can manage people and systems as well as promote products or services related to the concrete industry. It entails a broad range of courses, from English and history to science and mathematics. A series of required business courses such as finance, marketing, management and business law are also taken throughout the length of the program.

The concrete-specific courses teach the fundamentals of concrete, properties and testing, concrete construction and more. All these courses provide much more than what is simply in the text – they emphasize problem solving, quality assurance and customer satisfaction. They utilize practical case studies and an internship to make sure the student obtains real-world experience essential to starting a successful career. Additional opportunities include on-campus socials and other events providing industry networking and professional development.

In 2012, an Executive MBA program was added by the CIM National Steering Committee. The CIM Executive MBA is specifically designed for individuals with three or more years of experience in the industry.

The CIM program has provided and continues to provide future leaders for the concrete industry. To learn more about the program, visit
