Mixer supplier engineers efficient production line

Blend-Pro Inc., a member of the Penetron Group, operates a toll processing facility in Allentown, Pa., that produces a wide variety of dry-blended cementitious products for use in construction applications, ranging from commercial and residential to civil and mining.
