SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Central Concrete Supply Co., Inc., a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ:USCR), and the leader in delivering low-CO 2 concrete to the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced that it will be initiating placements of its high-performing, low-CO 2 concrete mixes for the San Jose Earthquakes Stadium on September 27.

Central Concrete's Mixes will Reduce Carbon Footprint by One Million Lbs. In CO 2 EmissionsCentral Concrete will be supplying an estimated 12,000 cubic yards of its concrete, including low-CO 2 mixes for the San Jose Earthquakes Stadium's foundations and walls, interior and exterior slabs, and other applications. Central Concrete's low-CO 2 mixes significantly cut the Portland cement content of the concrete mix (a major contributor to green house gas emissions) and will result in an estimated net savings of one million pounds in CO 2 emissions from embodied carbon, compared to traditional concrete mixes.

General contractor, Devcon Construction, Inc., and subcontractor Joseph J. Albanese, Inc. selected Central Concrete for the Earthquakes Stadium project.

"We selected Central Concrete based on our shared partnerships working on large-scale concrete projects, including the new San Francisco 49ers stadium," said Gary Filizetti, president, Devcon Construction, Inc. "The fact that Central Concrete excels not only in concrete performance, but also in mixes that reduce the carbon footprint, was very important to us."

"Central Concrete has been a key concrete supplier of ours for more than 55 years," said John Albanese, president and CEO, Joseph J. Albanese, Inc. "Together, we share the same work ethic of 'just getting it done' with a commitment to safety and quality. We look forward to working with Central Concrete on this landmark project."
