2. U.S. Concrete and its subsidiary, Polaris Materials obtained the permits necessary to increase the volume of aggregate imports at its terminal in Long Beach, California. Polaris can now deliver up to 2 million tons of aggregate each year, effectively doubling its throughput capacity.

3. A view into the Cemex Balcones Quarry control room in New Braunfels, Texas. The Balcones Quarry is the largest crushed stone operation in the United States, producing 10 to 12 million tpy.

4. P&Q bumped into Spencer Kossl, the new business development and applications manager at Terex Minerals Processing Systems (Terex MPS), during the company’s distributor event in Oklahoma City. Prior to joining Terex MPS, Kossl spent 14 years at Telsmith. At Terex MPS, he will focus on the continued development of the company’s modular product line and take a leadership role in full-system projects.

5. Telsmith celebrated Manufacturing Day this year by inviting students from local schools to visit its facility in Wisconsin in an effort to connect future generations to careers in manufacturing. In this photo, students watch a large swing jaw move through the shop floor via an overhead crane. In all, Telsmith hosted 110 students from three local schools.
