U.S. Concrete’s major investments into its aggregate operations – most notably Polaris Materials and Coram Materials – have moved us from a predominantly concrete-focused company to a more heavy materials-driven company.

For us, more than optimism, we value being in the aggregates industry and look forward to the remainder of 2020 because of its essential demand. Our newly acquired operations, serving both coasts and international locations, have opened new opportunities for U.S. Concrete, adding to our optimism.

Aggregates are always needed, whether for fill material, base, ready-mix or hot-mix. It’s also needed in all sectors in the construction industry and other industries. As the economy recovers, it offers significantly more opportunity for us to supply each of those sectors, but also enhances our concrete operations’ offerings. We are able to control inventories and the consistency of our concrete mixes.

Daren Lesley is vice president of aggregates at U.S. Concrete, which is headquartered in Euless, Texas.

Editor’s note: As part of our Road to Recovery coverage, P&Q is turning to some of the industry’s leaders for their takes on the road ahead. Leaders such as Lesley were posed with the following question: As you look to the remainder of 2020, what factors give you reason for optimism about the aggregate industry?
