Mike Munro, International Sales Manager, represented Besser at the Precast 2014 Annual General Meeting, trade show and seminars which was held in Leicester, United Kingdom (UK) on 1 May. Over 300 industry members benefited from participating in the day-long event. The seminar program had a dual focus, providing seminars geared to solving technical issues such as moisture control and coloring concrete and on broader topics such as “green” building design.

Attendees were in good spirits with market conditions throughout the UK, including Northern Ireland, showing steady improvement. Visitors were optimistic about the market and are beginning to talk about what investments are necessary to make in their plants to maximize their efficiency and/or expand their product line. In the evening a special celebration was held in honor of the British Precast Association’s 50th Anniversary. Many attendees were during the program for their achievements in the areas of best practices, health and safety, sustainability, project and innovation within the industry.
