Programs to educate the next generation of concrete industry management professionals will receive $2,000 thanks to Dean Webb of Frank Webb Construction in Wheatland, California, and Doosan Portable Power.
Dean submitted the $2,000 winning bid for a Doosan® RX-304H upright rammer during the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) auction at World of Concrete 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Proceeds from his winning bid will go to CIM educational efforts, including four-year Bachelor of Science in concrete industry management degree programs currently in place at Middle Tennessee State University; California State University, Chico; Texas State University; and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Doosan Portable Power donated the RX-304H upright rammer to the CIM auction to support CIM programs, which provide skilled workers for the concrete industry. Since 2000, more than 1,300 students have graduated from CIM programs, and more than 80% of graduates are employed in concrete or concrete-related industries.
“Doosan Portable Power is proud to contribute to CIM because it provides an outstanding education to the future leaders of the concrete industry,” says Lance Mathern, vice president, Doosan Portable Power North America. “We also would like to express our gratitude to Dean, who should enjoy years of service from his new Doosan upright rammer.”
The Doosan RX-304H upright rammer has an impact force of 3,000 lb. and 600–650 blows per minute. It is engineered to compact such materials as mixed and cohesive soils and heavy clays. All Doosan light compaction equipment is manufactured with the highest-quality materials in the industry.
Dean picked up his new Doosan RX-304H from his local dealer for Doosan Portable Power equipment, Volvo Construction Equipment & Services in Sacramento, California.
