    President's Report

    ACI So Cal

    Presidents Message

    For those of you out there who do not know me, I am part owner and VP/GM of Spragues’ Ready Mix. We are an independent ready mixed concrete producer with 2 plants and 40 employees. I have been a member of ACI SoCal since 1997. It is a privilege and honor to serve as your board of directors’ president this year.

    As we embark on this New Year, we look with anticipation to the future. Thomas Jefferson wrote “I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past”. The future demands for concrete in all parts of the country, including southern California are projected for substantial growth.  

    As contractors, engineers, architects, specifiers, and suppliers of concrete, we must keep up with the technology in our industry. These advancements in technologies from concrete additives, supplementary cementitious materials, and aggregates we can truly display our stewardship of our available natural resources. As we make decisions about these benefits, we are subconsciously being reminded of how things change in our industry, as in so many others.

    Because concrete can be used for so many different building applications, the sky is virtually the limit for our growth opportunities. I am excited to see how we all use our own gifts and talents to change our industry for our future generations.

    Lastly, we are celebrating our 60th year anniversary of the ACI SoCal chapter and with an awards dinner. We hope you and your spouse/significant other can join us along with others meeting at the Disneyland Hotel June 1st, 2018.

    Respectfully,

    Steve Toland 

    ACI SoCal 2018 President
