Building the future with lightweight precast panels in North America
We have started 2018 with successful participation on 3 important industry exhibitions in the United States. Corniels Tavenier, Commercial Director of Aircrete Europe, looks back on a successful start of the year:
“We kicked-off 2018 with an intensive schedule. World of Concrete, ICON Expo and The Precast Show; all passed in no more than a month`s time. These high-quality community events targeting construction industry players provided us with the op- portunity to meet with new developers, builders and other building materials manufacturers not only from the US, but also from the rest of the world.
All three events were attended together with our strategic alliance partner Besser Company. They did an excellent job organizing and managing the events as always, for which we would like to sincerely thank them.
Lightweight precast concrete panels are a building solution already widely adopted in Europe and other regions in the world. Therefore, we see a great potential for lightweight precast panels in North America as well. Both in terms of replacing existing building solutions with one, single, lightweight concrete solution in for example rewall applications, but also through complementary applications through lightweight concrete cladding panels on wood or steel structure.
We would like to thank all the visitors of World of Concrete, Icon Expo and the Precast Show for showing great interest in Aircrete Europe and its technologies and services. We are excited to continue to develop this market and further accelerate the use of lightweight precast panels in North America.”
