This year, the company will provide its best-selling model – the MQ Whiteman HHNG5 8-foot ride-on power trowel - to go on the auction block in support of these unique educational programs.

CIM programs prepare future concrete industry leaders by producing broadly educated, graduates grounded in basic business management, who are knowledgeable of concrete technology and techniques and are able to manage people and systems as well as promote products or services related to the industry. 

“CIM provides a foundation for development and growth of future leaders within our industry”, said Juan Quiros, Senior Director of Engineering and Product Support. “The individuals and companies committing time and resources CIM programs care about the concrete industry. Long term, we’d like to see additional universities create similar programs.”

The 2018 CIM Auction will be held on Wednesday, January 24 during the 2018 World of Concrete in the North Hall Meeting Rooms of the Las Vegas Convention Center.   Last year, the concrete industry generously donated over 150 items through both the silent and live auctions, raising more than $875,000 in gross revenue for the program universities

Multiquip is proud to support CIM as it works to further careers in the concrete and construction industry.

About Concrete Industry Management (CIM)

Receiving tremendous support from the concrete industry, the CIM program was the first of its kind in United States – a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management.

Today, there are more than 500 students pursuing degrees in Concrete Industry Management, and hundreds of CIM graduates working in the concrete industry. In 2012, an Executive MBA program was added by the CIM National Steering Committee. The CIM Executive MBA is designed for individuals with three or more years of experience in the industry. The CIM program continues to provide future leaders for the concrete industry. To learn more about the program, visit www.concretedegree.com.
