2021 World of Concrete

AHMEEK, Michigan – Neuvokas Corp, a leading composite rebar manufacturer, will not be attending this coming World of Concrete industry trade show rescheduled for June 2021 in Las Vegas, NV.    

Ken Keranen, Neuvokas COO said, “As much as we enjoy and benefit from participation in World of Concrete, we made the decision to not attend this coming year as the rescheduled event falls squarely in the middle of the construction industry’s peak work period.  As such, we feel we can better service customers by being fully available to respond to their order, fulfillment and technical needs during this critical time.  We look forward to returning to World of Concrete in 2022 during its regularly scheduled window.  In lieu of our normal World of Concrete special, our distributor/retailing partners will be afforded a pre-season 2021 special purchasing discount, the particulars of which will be announced shortly.”

I wanted to drop a line and comment on your GatorBar product. This is the second project we’ve used it on and the first one that we used a power rake with. We placed the bar 18” OCBW and chaired it to 2 1/2” for a 5” slab. The GatorBar worked well, in particular we noticed how it rebounded back to the center of the slab after we drove over it, with steel rebar the rebar would often end up bent and left at the bottom of the slab, where it does nothing for crack control. Also, the labor savings on rebar placement was significant and I know the crew appreciated not having to wrestle with the heavy steel. We look forward to using it again on future projects.
