Blockmakers Workshops® Filling Fast

After a year hiatus, demand is high, and courses are filling fast for the Fall Blockmakers Workshops.

An industry professional who attended the Concrete Masonry Technology course in 1992 stopped by our booth at World of Concrete to thank us for hosting these courses and commented, “The Concrete Masonry Technology Blockmakers Workshop I attended is still the most impactful course I’ve had during my entire career.” He is now in the manufactured concrete stone veneer segment of the industry and shared that he regularly draws upon what he learned. 

The lineup of courses this fall include the new Blockmakers 101. Amateur block plant staff will benefit from this overview course which provides students with knowledge to use immediately upon return to their plant. The ever-popular Concrete Masonry Technology, Advanced Concrete Masonry Technology, and two sessions of the Vibrapac® courses complete the schedule. You can register using the link to the schedule above. 

Trade Shows are Back

The Besser Team hit the road to participate in the first two live industry trade shows held in the United States in more than a year. The energy level was high, and the smiles were engaging as attendees visited with exhibitors at The Precast Show in New Orleans, Louisiana and the World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We seized the opportunity to showcase all of our product lines to the industry. During these three-day events, a steady stream of producers shared their current needs and future plans – it’s certainly an exciting time to be serving this industry! 

We’re looking forward to the 2022 editions of the World of Concrete, 18 – 20 January, in Las Vegas and the Precast Show, featuring ICON Expo, from 3 – 5 March in Kansas City, Missouri.
