GCP Applied Technologies Expands Verifi Concrete Management System Through Acquisition of SensoCrete

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GCP Applied Technologies Inc. (NYSE:GCP) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of all intellectual property and related assets within SensoCrete™, a Canadian technology company in the ready mix concrete industry.

The patented SensoCrete probe technology will augment GCP’s successful Verifi® system which uses sensors installed on ready mix trucks to measure, manage and record concrete properties in transit. Using cloud-based technology, Verifi customers are connected with real-time data that helps to improve the quality and performance of their concrete, increase productivity and accelerate job completion.

Incorporating SensoCrete technology into the Verifi system will extend the number and type of concrete properties measured. GCP’s sensor technologies, construction chemicals, and technical service expertise will offer ready mix customers an even greater range of accurate data, and in turn, significant commercial advantage.

“We pioneered data-driven concrete management in 2010 and have been leading the market ever since. By continuing to invest in our technology, GCP is helping our customers to win through improved quality, performance and productivity,” said Adam Grose, President, GCP Specialty Construction Chemicals. “Now we’re expanding our patent portfolio and broadening our technology offering in order to further enhance our business model and customer value proposition.”

“We are witnessing strong demand for Verifi, and we’re confident that the incorporation of SensoCrete will further accelerate this trend. GCP provides our customers with unprecedented visibility into their operations and their own delivered product,” said Grose.
