Concrete Promotion Council of the Ozarks

The Concrete Promotion Council of the Ozarks is an organization of leaders from a wide variety of concrete associated businesses joining forces to educate owners, developers, architects, engineers, and other design professionals about the superior properties and many uses of concrete.

Although still competitive, members realize they have more things in common than in conflict. They exchange ideas that will aid in the production of a quality product and better business practices. CPCOZ members work hard to promote the increased use of concrete. They strive to expand knowledge and understanding about concrete to architects, engineers, general contractors, owners, and craftsmen.

If someone is interested in becoming a driver, contact one of our ready-mix member companies or if they are interested in a career in flatwork, contact one of our concrete contractor members.
