Who We Are
Bob Banka, the President of CMS has been involved with the development and promotion of pervious concrete for over twenty five years now. Not only a recognized leader in the industry, Bob is an NRMCA Certified Pervious Concrete Craftsman and a voting member of the American Concrete Institute’s Committee 522 on pervious concrete.
In addition he has been instrumental in developing pervious mixes that are durable, good looking and that perform well. He was the person who discovered the advantages of using hydration stablizers to prolong the life of pervious concrete in a concrete mixer. This allowed for a truck to carry pervious concrete all day without the need to cycle the trucks off of a pervious job after two trips over concerns of the pervious concrete sticking to the drum, as well as to increase the window of workability for the contractor and allow for a slower curing of the concrete which increases it’s ultimate strength.
Whether you need an expert pervious concrete consultant, a team to help train your own crew or a fully equipped crew of Certified Technicians and Installers, CMS can take care of your needs.
Headquartered in Medina, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb, our staff has easy access to almost anywhere in the United States and beyond.
CMS will continue it’s quest to help lead the industry in innovative mix designs and equipment choices to improve the durability and aesthetics of pervious concrete through collaborations with other pervious concrete experts and education of both specifiers and installers of pervious concrete. The foundation of our business has been, and will continue to be strong values, and honoring the Lord in a manner consistent with Biblical principles.
