Southern Concrete Materials, Inc., a Local, Family Owned Company, Is Not Affiliated With the Savannah, GA-Based Firm Proposing the Concrete Plant in N. Buncombe County

ASHEVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Southern Concrete Materials, Inc., an integral part of Western North Carolina (WNC) for almost 50 years, has always strived to work hand-in-hand with neighborhoods, be sensitive to the environment, and give back to the community.

Southern Concrete Materials, Inc. (SCM) has no relationship with the persons or company purported to be based in Savannah, GA who wishes to build this N. Buncombe concrete plant.

N. Buncombe residents are concerned that the proposed plant would further complicate traffic in an area which is already congested during morning and afternoon rush hours. They are worried that the concrete trucks would pose a safety hazard.

"We are in no way affiliated with these out-of-state persons or company and have always worked hard to be a good neighbor," explains Jim Combest, President, SCM. "You need to understand our community. We work with each other. That's what makes WNC a great place to live!"
