Throughout the year, NRMCA has conducted benchmarking surveys for the industry. Below are some of the surveys that we have compiled in alphabetical order:

 

Environmental Costs Survey

The ready mixed concrete industry is required to comply with several federal regulations. This survey evaluates the costs incurred by member companies to conform to the standards. This survey measures the following regulations: Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (Solid Waste Management), Clean Water Act (Water Quality & NPDES Permits), Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (Air Quality), Emergency Planning and Community Right To Know Act (Public Notifications) and Comprehensive Emergency Response and Community Liability Act (Hazardous Materials Cleanup). The OES Committee sponsors this survey. For more information, contact NRMCA's Gary Mullings or 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1161.

 

Fleet Benchmarking Survey

The OES Committee sponsors NRMCA’s Fleet Benchmarking Survey. This yearly survey reports on maintenance costs, fleet age, fleet type and personnel levels for supporting fleets. The results are reported in Concrete InFocus magazine. For more information, contact NRMCA's Gary Mullings or at 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1161.

Industry Data Survey

This highly popular survey collects information on ready mixed concrete production and the costs associated with the sales and support of concrete. This report is only available to ready mixed concrete producers that participate in the survey. The survey reports on U.S. averages as well as regional statistics. NRMCA’s Business Administration Committee sponsors this survey. All information collected is received and compiled by an independent certified public accounting firm and remains confidential.

  • Click here for the 2014 (for 2013 data) survey. *Deadline for submission is Saturday, May 31.

  • For participants of past surveys, prior year surveys can be obtained by contacting Michael Olivarri at 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1130 or by e-mail at molivarri@nrmca.org.

 

New! Monthly Reporting of Key Metrics

NRMCA is now offering a new and valuable analytical tool – monthly real-time reporting of key metrics. This new reporting process will allow your organization to make key financial and operational decisions based on information that is provided by you and other NRMCA members real-time on a monthly basis. The information you provide will be aggregated with all other respondents, normalized for monthly comparative analysis and reported to you within days of your submission. It will help you build a database of key information that will become more valuable over time.
The new reporting process includes four key metrics:

  1. total cubic yards of ready mix produced during the reporting month,

  2. average selling price per cubic yard of concrete during the reporting month,

  3. total materials cost per cubic yard of concrete during the reporting month and,

  4. total licensed and insured ready mix trucks during the reporting month.

We anticipate that we may add to these four key metrics as organizations begin to appreciate them and come to rely on their value and seek even more information. Information you submit is sent directly to an outside Certified Public Accounting Firm to ensure that confidentiality of your data is maintained.

NRMCA Annual Compensation Survey

The NRMCA Compensation Survey evaluates a firm’s employee compensation structure by surveying companies across the U.S. on compensation packages and benefits for all positions in an organization – salaried and non-salaried. This report is only available to ready mixed concrete producers that participate in the survey. NRMCA’s Business Administration Committee sponsors this survey. All information collected is received and compiled by an independent certified public accounting firm and remains confidential.

  • Click here for the 2014 (for 2013 data) survey. *Deadline for submission is Saturday, May 31.

  • For a hard copy of the Compensation Survey, contact Michael Olivarri at 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1130 or by e-mail at molivarri@nrmca.org.

 

NRMCA Quality Survey

The NRMCA Quality Survey is sponsored by the RES Committee. Only by measuring quality it is possible to improve it and this survey provides a means for companies to do so. The survey has a quality measurement section which can be used to quantify the benefits of improved quality. Several survey questions will establish industry benchmarks that impact quality for frequency of testing, quality control personnel, quality documentation, and equipment monitoring. Producers responding to the survey will be able to compare their systems to these industry benchmarks and improve their processes if necessary. Survey responses of individual companies will be kept confidential, while summarized survey responses will be shared with all the survey participants. A report of the survey results will be published in NRMCA’s bimonthly Concrete InFocus magazine. For more information, contact NRMCA's Karthik Obla at 240-485-1163.

    The survey is also available via e-mail from NRMCA’s Shawnita Dickens at sdickens@nrmca.org

 

NRMCA Safety Contest

NRMCA’s Safety Contest is a per-plant contest open to all concrete batching facilities operated by NRMCA member companies. For more information, contact NRMCA's Gary Mullings at 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1161 or by e-mail, gmullings@nrmca.org

NRMCA SCM Survey

As part of a funded research project on increased fly ash utilization in hydraulic cement concrete, NRMCA is tasked with conducting a survey to better understand SCM use. SCM can consist of fly ash meeting ASTMC618/AASHTO M295, slag cement meeting C989, and silica fume meeting C1240.

 

This survey only pertains to SCM used in all concrete supplied by a ready mixed concrete producer. It does not cover SCM use in non concrete applications. The data will be kept confidential and only the overall nationwide survey results will be shared with all survey participants and other researchers.

Production Reporting Program

Successful businesses and organizations use information to drive strategies and improve the odds for success. In many industries, trade associations have the standing to collect and report valuable cross-company data. The ready mixed concrete industry is no different. NRMCA and many state and local associations currently conduct surveys on a range of important topics, including production reporting. Now, an effort is underway to increase the number of local, state and regional reports, while standardizing the data collected so that compilation into a national report is possible. An NRMCA Task Group has developed Guidelines to Conducting a Production Reporting Program. State and local associations are encouraged to use and follow the recommendations in the Guidelines. Click on the links below to download the Guidelines in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format.

Safety Benchmarking Survey
NRMCA publishes an annual safety statistics benchmarking survey. A primary goal of the survey is to collect injury and illness information so that member companies have guidelines for comparison within the industry. The report from this survey will also serve to provide assistance to members with benchmarking systems already in place, and to help those who may wish to implement benchmarking in their respective companies. For more information, contact NRMCA's Gary Mullings or 1-888-846-7622, ext. 1161.
