World of Concrete 2015

The MPS Civil team attended the 2015 World of Concrete (WOC) Trade Expo. Attendance for the Expo was the highest in six years, with a 15% increase from the previous year with 55,000+ in attendance. The MPS Civil team was among the 200 exhibitors at the Las Vegas Convention Center displaying a vast line of civil construction products and industry leading service.

“The excitement and energy we saw at the World of Concrete was like no other. We are very pleased with the results of the show in all categories, from the increase in the number of exhibitors to the increase in attendees to the increase in the number of seminars taken. These increases show not only the value that World of Concrete brings to the concrete and masonry industries, but also shows that the industry is getting stronger and poised for much success,” said Tom Cindric, Vice President, Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction & Real Estate.

With the increased show attendance, the MPS team anticipates this as another signal the construction industry is back to an upward trend. At the show, the MPS Civil booth showcased the driven anchor product line (Manta Ray and Sting Ray). This presented the opportunity to introduce numerous design and construction professionals to a new alternative for anchoring.

With MPS Civil being the largest helical manufacturer at the 2015 show, several competitors and professionals offering services to the helical product industry visited the booth. The MPS Civil team’s efforts to gain a leadership position in the deep foundation construction industry are showing excellent results. Visitors to the booth offered positive comments on our initiatives with the Deep Foundation Institute to develop solid engineering design practices to the helical industry and innovative product designs. Feedback from visitors clearly indicated MPS Civil is recognized as a dominate force in the helical product industry.

“With the industry ramping up again, education became a key asset at WOC this year. Attendees took more classes than they have in the last six years, sharpening their skills for what’s to come. In addition, international attendees made a big impact scouring the show for new equipment, tools, and technology to make their operations more efficient and profitable,” said Jackie James, Show Director, World of Concrete.
