South Louisiana Rail Facility

South Louisiana Rail Facility

Jefferson Davis Parish, Louisiana

The South Louisiana Rail Facility, LLC and the Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury recently started construction on The South LA Rail Facility. This facility will feature a dual truck pit that can unload a truck in four minutes and elevators that can handle 25,000 bushels per hour.

This facility is located approximately 10 miles east of Lake Charles, Louisiana, just off of interstate I-10. It will be used by the surrounding southwest Louisiana rice farmers to get product to market. This project should be completed and in service by the end of the year, in time for the next rice harvest.

This was a team effort between our Baton Rouge rental staff headed by Cade Cothern (41) Rental manager, Houston South Rentals, Bill Nagy and his staff (51), Bill Sheu and the engineering staff, Bob Dozier (45) manager Sulphur, and salesmen Steve Wilson(41).  All worked together to meet the customers’ needs now and till the completion of the project.

18th Annual Houston Golf Classic

CMC 18th Annual Houston Golf Classic

Houston, Texas

On Thursday April 19th, 2012 CMC Construction Services held its 18th Annual Houston Golf Classic at Wildcat Golf Club. Employees of CMC Construction Services were able to team up vendors and customers to  make it a memorable experience.  The day started off with a great breakfast as old friends and colleagues were able to catch up. What followed was an exciting round of golf on one of Houston’s most beautiful courses just outside of downtown.

After a day of beautiful weather, a delicious BBQ lunch, and a great competition we were able to hand out raffle prizes provided by our sponsors and hand the winners of the tournament along with the longest drive and closest to the pin winners beautiful crystal trophies.

A special thanks to the organizers and those who helped put on such a successful event and we look forward to doing it again next year!

New Product and New Vendor

Almand Light Tower

Dallas, Texas

Recently, CMC Construction Services in Dallas sold seven Almand Light Towers to Webber, LLC. This is a new product for CMC Construction Services. John Pierson, North Texas Equipment Manager, secured pricing and established Almand Brothers as a new vendor. Due to John’s aggressive pricing negotiating Britt Sims was able to beat several competitors for this order.

CMC Construction Services provides many products our customers are not aware of and John’s sale motto is “don’t be afraid to sell anything, if we don’t have it we can get it.”

Thanks to John Pierson for submitting the pictures for this story.

The American Society of Concrete Contractors was formed by and for concrete contractors and others who provide services and goods to the industry. It is a powerful organization of contractors who share the same goals – to improve their businesses and their roles as contractors.

Recently ASCC in partnership with Keystone Concrete filmed an instructional video that covers all the steps that go into proper concrete placing and finishing by ASCC standards. A riding trowel from our Houston South Rental Shop was provided for and was the main focus of video.
