Alstom Wind Manufacturing Building

Alstrom Wind Manufacturing Plant

Amarillo, Texas

Amarillo Economic Develop Corp. built several buildings about a year ago to bring in new business to Amarillo. One of the buildings was a tilt-wall project in which we provided the complete package of products and services to Southwest General Contractors. The building was purchased by Alstom to manufacture wind turbine products.  Alstom needed more room for manufacturing and decided to add on to the existing building.

We have supplied National Concrete with several products to complete the project including fabricated rebar, Shep Wire, supports, plywood, lumber, stakes, Shep Sprayers, cure, form release and PPE Equipment.  Additionally, we supplied Caprock Building Systems with all engineering services, design, stamp and shoring equipment for the Alshor shoring system.

Thanks to everyone in the Amarillo Branch and our engineering group for making this project a success!

2010 TCA Convention

Each year the Tilt-Up Concrete Assocation (TCA) holds its annual convention for tilt-up professionals to share ideas and learn new methods on how to grow their business. This year’s convention was held in Irvine, California and the theme was “Building for Disaster Protection”.

Jimmie Ballard, National Tilt-Up Product Manager and current TCA President said, “we were very pleased with the attendance at this year’s TCA Convention. While there were fewer exhibitors at this event there were significantly more attendees compared to last year’s convention. I think the program that was put together for this convention, as well as the quality of speakers, brought in a better audience than anticipated.”

During the convention, the 2010 TCA Achievement Award Winner’s were announced. View the video below to see all of this year’s winning projects.

Bellatrix Product Demonstration

Bellatrix Demo

Houston, Texas

Our Houston Northwest location held a product demonstration this week for area customers. The demonstration focused on W.R. Meadows Bellatrix color enhancer.  Representatives from W.R. Meadows were on site to showcase the ease of use, the optimum gloss provided by the product, and the improved concrete durability.

Last month, Houston-Northwest used the Bellatrix product on its own concrete stained showroom floors and were excited to share the product’s benefits with customers.

Thanks to all the Houston-Metro locations and sales representatives for helping with this event.
