FORTA Donates to CIM Auction


Since its start in 1999, the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Program has given students the skills and techniques needed in today’s ever-changing concrete construction industry. This first-of-its-kind program offers new concrete professionals extensive management skills developed specifically for the concrete industry while earning a four-year degree, or even an Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

The annual CIM Auction, held during World of Concrete, has raised over $9 million since its inception. All proceeds from this amazing auction fund continued advancement for research and educational initiatives, as well as offering world-class academic programs. In 2020, members of the concrete industry donated over 200 items for auction resulting in nearly $1.2 million for a program that has helped over 1,300 graduates from 4 different universities.  2021, while not a record breaking year, raised an impressive $1.15 million in gross revenue.

FORTA is proud to offer our continued support of this program by donating our patented FORTA-FERRO® reinforcement fibers for the 15th consecutive year. Bid on this and so many other products during World of Concrete 2022 in Las Vegas on January 19th in Room W106.
