What sets us apart

What sets us apart

Focused on Sustainable Productivity

Iowa is a place of abundant natural beauty, and we are committed to maintaining our state’s environmental resources. As such, Metro Ready Mix uses sustainable practices and technology that enhance productivity and are kind to the environment.

To improve efficiency and eliminate paper tickets, we implemented an e-ticketing system called Connex. The system’s real-time concrete delivery status enables construction supervisors to plan work according to when the concrete will arrive.

In addition, we adopted CarbonCure technology, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions by fixing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the concrete mix. Turning the CO2 into a mineral makes the finished roads stronger while preventing the gas from escaping into our environment. Not only does CarbonCure reduce our costs by reducing the amount of materials required, it also significantly reduces the carbon footprint of concrete.

Metro Ready Mix is a member of the Iowa Concrete Ready Mix Association.
