This enables delivery of premium quality concrete bridge projects faster and more cost effectively, while remaining fully standards-compliant.

"The partnership will enable InQuik to leverage CMC's extensive reach and manufacturing capacity, enhancing its ability to rapidly scale the delivery of these innovative solutions," said Logan Mullaney, President of InQuik.
