ACPA announces Concrete Pipe Week 2023

Aug. 14, 2023
Held September 24-30, 2023, Concrete Pipe Week will feature activities and events, including complimentary webinars and a concrete pipe plant virtual tour.

The American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) announced that Concrete Pipe Week 2023 will be held September 24-30, 2023.

The association said that Concrete Pipe Week recognizes the significance of concrete pipe and box culverts and affirms their contributions to building long-lasting and sustainable communities and infrastructure.

The 2023 theme is “Engineered Strength. Proven Resilience. Undeniable Sustainability.”

“Concrete Pipe Week celebrates the nation’s resilient infrastructure,” said Steven Hawkins, ACPA president. “Like oxygen, the infrastructure hidden beneath the places we travel, work, and play, is largely taken for granted until the moment we don’t have enough. Concrete pipe is central to the nation’s infrastructure and has proven itself remarkably reliable for more than a century. We believe this is reason to celebrate the products our industry contributes to the nation’s resilient infrastructure.”

The week-long Concrete Pipe Week celebration includes activities and events at the national, state, and local levels that parallel this year’s theme:

Concrete Pipe Plant Virtual Tour – A virtual trip to Savannah, GA, to tour ACPA member Diamond Concrete Product’s recently renovated facilities. Virtual tour attendees will gain insights into the production process and have a chance to see the engineered strength of a pipe firsthand.

Complimentary Webinars – Three free webinars are being offered for attendees to learn more about concrete pipe and the resources available from the ACPA and its affiliated state associations. Presentations include Concrete Pipe – Proven Resilience, Concrete Pipe – Undeniable Sustainability, and Finding Resources that Work for You.

State Proclamations — Governors and other elected officials from around the country share their support and pride in concrete pipe by signing state declarations for Concrete Pipe Week. Declarations, pictures, and public sentiments are shared leading up to and during this week.

Registration for the virtual tour and webinars are available at concretepipeweek.org/activities

In addition to the online activities, ACPA members from across the country are hosting in-person plant tours, customer appreciation events, and offering educational opportunities.
