RE: Concrete pricing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Cement is the ingrediant driving price. Most concrete in the US is batched from local cement kilns.

The demand on the Front Range has been particularly high recently. Holcim ( a major cement kiln) shut down recently due to some problems with their main kiln. This cut cement production (already strained) in half for about a week. Holcim was rationing cement to ready mix plants.

Cements on the world market are being consumed by China.

Low supply of cement and high demand of concrete have jacked prices up.

Anyone have any insight on concrete pricing and / or the reason for high pricing in Colorado?
