One more way, J.J. Kennedy, Inc. remains a step ahead of our competition in service.

Sustainability

In response to growing environmental and economic forces, architects, engineers, developers, and owners are seeking efficient, innovative building solutions that conserve non-renewable resources. Increasingly, concrete is being recognized for its strong environmental benefits in support of creative and effective sustainable development. When considering the lifetime environmental impact of a building material—extraction, production, construction, operation, demolition, and recycling— concrete is an excellent choice to meet these goals.

J.J. Kennedy, Inc. is one of the few ready-mix concrete companies to operate fully-functional concrete reclaimer units. Currently, three of our plants are using a reclaimer on a daily, load by load basis. A reclaimer unit is an investment in the future. When a truck returns to the plant; it uses the reclaimer to recycle (or reclaim) any raw materials from the contents left in the truck. The reclaimed raw materials may be reused in a variety of ways.
