U.S. Concrete continues hurricane relief efforts

By |  October 26, 2017

U.S. Concrete is continuing hurricane relief efforts to support its affected employees in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). U.S. Concrete’s USVI employees work for its two Virgin Islands-based wholly-owned subsidiaries, Heavy Materials LLC and Spartan Products LLC.

Following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the company is sending home generators to all USVI employees to help relieve their burdens and assist them in an expedited recovery. In addition to the generators, the company has been sending care packages containing essential health, household, and personal hygiene items.

The company also established the U.S. Concrete Hurricane Relief Fund to help ensure that employees impacted by these unprecedented storms have necessities such as food, clothing, housing, household repairs, transportation and medical assistance. Following fundraising efforts to support employees affected by Hurricane Harvey, the company decided to match all donations made by its employees to aid USVI employees.

“Having been on St. Thomas during both Hurricanes Irma and Maria, I know firsthand what our employees and the good citizens of the U.S. Virgin Islands have been through,” says Niel Poulsen, U.S. Concrete’s executive vice president overseeing USVI operations. “U.S. Concrete is committed to helping our employees recover from these devastating storms and getting them back to a normal way of life as quickly as possible. The necessities the company is providing our employees will hopefully aide them to a quick recovery and be a reliable asset for future needs. I am very humbled and proud to be a part of such a generous mission.”
