Concrete Supply Co. Expands Adoption of CarbonCure's Technology Across Three Facilities
Concrete Supply Co. now uses CarbonCure's technology in three plants across the Greater Charlotte Area
Charlotte-NC, Concrete Supply Co. (CSC) has consistently been on the forefront of customer service and is widely renowned for their safety track record in the Carolinas. Recently, they have found a new area to lead - environmental stewardship. CSC is now offering concrete made with recycled CO2 across Charlotte, North Carolina and the surrounding areas by retrofitting a second and third facility with CarbonCure’s technology.

CarbonCure’s technology is helping more than 60 concrete producers like CSC save on their production costs, while also allowing producers to offer more sustainable concrete to the growing green building market. CarbonCure's technology offers concrete producers an opportunity to recycle waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete to increase its environmental, material, and economic performance. Not only is the CO2 permanently converted into a solid mineral within the concrete, but the addition of CO2 also improves the compressive strength of concrete. This allows concrete producers to optimize their mix designs to unlock operational cost savings.
“CSC isn’t your typical ready mix concrete producer. Our engineers have extensive material expertise to ensure we meet (and often exceed) quality objectives every single day in all of our projects. CSC focuses on being a resource for the professional and contracting community with insights on best practices and innovative ways to improve performance. CarbonCure certainly fits that mold!” says Business Development Manager, Drew Turner. “The green building community in the area is growing and introducing CarbonCure to our plants is a great way we can support it while improving our bottom line.”
Over the past five years, the city of Charlotte has been expanding its green building market. With the new partnership with CarbonCure Technologies, Concrete Supply Co. is helping to support the growing green building community by supplying greener concrete. Concrete specified with CarbonCure’s technology is recognized by numerous environmental stewardship programs like LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and can help designers, architects, and engineers gain credits to hit program accreditation targets.
Concrete Supply Co. has nearly 90 facilities across the Carolinas. With a team of 900 people, they produce nearly 3 million cubic yards of concrete annually. Notable projects that CSC has supplied the concrete on include the McGuire Nuclear Station, the Carolina Panthers football stadium, numerous distribution facilities for Amazon, Wal-Mart, Harris Teeter, and data warehouse facilities for Facebook, Google and Apple.
Despite winning sizable and high-profile projects, the secret to CSC’s success comes from their commitment to their customers by delivering quality while prioritizing safety. Among numerous honors, CSC was awarded the “Best Supplier / Service Company” in the Carolinas on three separate occasions the Associated General Contractors (AGC). Furthermore, CSC goes beyond making quality concrete and focuses on elevating the community by regularly participating in local charites. The United Way has consistently selected CSC as a pacesetter company for their annual United Way Campaigns since the 80s.
