World of Concrete celebrated its 43rd anniversary this year with its largest show to date - 700,000 square feet of exhibit space, 60,000 industry professionals and 1,500 exhibiting companies. It is the only annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction markets featuring leading industry suppliers showcasing the latest and greatest in new products, technology and innovation.
As we celebrate 100 years of service in 2016, A.H. Harris made it a mission to give back to charities close to their hearts. On November 18, 2016 the A.H. Harris and Kenseal Charlotte, NC branches came together to donate their time to volunteer to the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte Meal Team. The RMH strives to help families who are going through rough times and provide them with a more comfortable 'home-away-from-home'.
When it comes to Harris Pride, it has alot to do with the strong relationships we share with our long-lasting vendors. Within our over 50 locations, our branches and teams have established connections with various companies that add value to our customers and create business opportunities for our organizations. We want our construction community to learn more about our vendors and give them an opportunity to share their story. That's why we are running our "Partner Profile" Blog Series. Here's the latest Vendor introducing one of their products to our audience: Let's hear it from W.R. Meadows, everyone!
