What is Operation Flatwork?

The goal of Operation Flatwork is to increase the overall amount of flatwork business ARM ready mix producer members get over the next three years. We'll give you resources and expertise to get more municipal street, intersection, roundabout, and parking lot projects turned to concrete so you can bid them. Learn more.

We will use these images for signs, postcards, and Powerpoint slides that we can create for you. We also will buy mailing labels so you can promote directly to public officials; they approve infrastructure budgets so we will make a case for concrete directly to them as well as to their engineers.
