Both represent an all- in-one engineered system that looks good while functioning as a state-of-the-art warehouse.” Sustainability is also at the forefront of both companies’ agendas. Considering concrete is the second most used substance on the planet and contributes up to eight percent of global CO2 emissions, the industry is hard-pressed to innovate. For Jersey Precast and Concrete Safety Systems, this means embracing new climate- friendly technologies across the concrete value chain.
