The Multi-National Cemen Tech with CEO Conner Deering

It's amazing what we sometimes stumble on. About two weeks ago we received a press release about an acquisition in the UK by a company based in Central Iowa. That got us to digging a bit and we came face to face with Cemen Tech a manufacturing company that makes something called Volumetric Concrete Trucks. Intrigued we invited CEO Connor Deering in for a conversation. And...wow. Forget about the old style cement trucks you're familiar with...this is something drastically different. And the ecological impact is also a big deal. Meet Connor Deering.
