P&Q’s State of the Industry Report reflects on 2017 and the year ahead

By |  December 18, 2017

The latest edition of Pit & Quarry featuring the magazine’s year-end State of the Industry Report is here.

The special report spanning 20 pages looks back on the aggregate industry in 2017, a year that was highly positive for producers across the United States. Pit & Quarry‘s report casts an eye toward 2018 and the years to come with an aggregate forecast from SC-Market Analytics’ David Chereb. In addition, FMI Corp.’s George Reddin and Scott Duncan recap the year of the megamerger, making their case that the construction materials market is currently in a period of profound competitive change.

Pit & Quarry‘s editors captured industry input from aggregate producers, manufacturers and dealers, as well, detailing their insights on the state of highway funding, equipment and technology, and mine safety and health within the report. Ogletree Deakins’ Bill Doran and Margo Lopez offer a commentary on the Mine Safety & Health Administration in their monthly column, breaking down a number of issues that occupied the attention of the mining industry in 2017.

Pit & Quarry‘s December 2017 edition covers a number of other topics, too, including how custom truck bodies can help reduce truck and equipment maintenance expenses and why aggregate producers should put more emphasis on wheel inspections. Additionally, our editors take you inside Carmeuse, Hawaiian Cement and Albert Frei & Sons operations, sharing how these sites are leveraging equipment and technology to their benefit.

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of Pit & Quarry. In January, the magazine will provide coverage on drilling and blasting, plant automation, and tire selection and management.
