Cemex and over 80 clients addressed several issues facing the construction industry in Northern California at its Building Materials Forum in Walnut Creek. Industry professionals offered an insight on industry trends, sharing best practices and the future of the industry.
Eric Wittmann, Cemex USA’s regional president – West Region, says: “Our customers face many of the same issues, and when we can arm them with additional information we have learned, we can work as an industry to find solutions to those common pain points like staffing and driver shortages.”
The event also included presentations on enhancing safety and staffing in tight labour markets to help clients prepare for possible changes.
In addition, an economist with the Portland Cement Association revealed information on areas of potential growth in the next few years as well as the potential pitfalls from a tight labour market.
Other forums are expected to be held in markets across the US later this year.
