EDGAR CO. (ECWd) -
Paris and Edgar County are welcoming a new business, that business being CCI Redi-Mix, a company that currently has locations in Effingham and Mattoon, is setting up a portable batch plant in Paris close to the IDOT building. This is a direct result of them winning the contract to supply materials to the North American Lighting (NAL) expansion project.
Company information taken directly from CCI's website:
"In 2006 several concrete contractors in central Illinois formed a company to produce concrete specifically formulated for the residential contractor. They knew that concrete needed to be workable, easy to finish and yet attain the strength and durability expected and required of concrete. Although developing mixes under lab conditions is a necessary part of the process, the real test is how the concrete performs long term when placed in field conditions. They opened their first ready mixed concrete plant in Effingham, Illinois in June of that year.
The second plant was opened in Mattoon, Illinois in January of 2010. Although the residential market is still a very important part of their business, they currently deliver concrete for streets, bridges, factories, warehouses, stores and a large variety of projects.
They have the facilities and equipment to design mixes specifically for the job or fulfill the requirements of the most demanding specified mix design."
We have heard that there are lots of people welcoming them to town and asking them to stay long after the NAL job is complete.
Their initial and primary mission is to provide redi-mix to the NAL expansion project. They will offer retail concrete sales in the near future.
