CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CEMATRIX Corporation (TSXV: CVX) (OTCQB: CTXXF) (“CEMATRIX” or the “Company“) a North American leading manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced cellular concrete products announced that its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, which include CEMATRIX (Canada) Inc. (“CCI”), MixOnSite USA Inc. (“MOS”) and Pacific International Grout Company (“PIGCO’) have executed $22.5 million in new contracts, $19.7 million of which was converted from contracts in process.
Factoring in the $22.5M in contracts executed, the converted contracts, and the new contracts in process and sales completed to date, the Corporation’s backlog remains strong at $87.9 million. $42.1 million of the Corporation’s backlog is now Contracted and $45.8 million is Contracts in Process.
“The $22.5 million in contracts executed since our last contract announcement include a $20.3 million ($15.8 million USD) contract with Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc. (“BB”) for the backfill of several new overpasses along a new freeway corridor in North Carolina. The US 70 Design-Build Project was awarded to MOS by BB and is the largest known cellular concrete infrastructure project ever awarded in North America. This is a major accomplishment for the CEMATRIX Group of Companies,” stated Jeff Kendrick, CEMATRIX President and CEO. “The project has been subject to ongoing delays due to COVID and logistical challenges including the re-location of established businesses. This highly anticipated project is now underway, and we expect to start processing and placing material on site in early 2023 and possibly by Q4 2022.”
“It is important to note that the CEMATRIX Group was awarded this project not on price alone, but also because of our advanced technologies and product/engineering applications knowledge that enabled CEMATRIX to work with the general contractor and the owner to re-engineer the project for the benefit of all parties involved. Once completed, this project should serve as a catalyst that will enable CEMATRIX to continue to land similar, large scale technically challenging projects in the future,” concluded Mr. Kendrick.
The Corporation’s Backlog is defined as Contracted plus Contracts in Process net of sales completed to date. Contracts in Process are defined as projects where the related contract is in office for review or signature; or signed and returned to the client for their signature; or is in the post award project submission process; or is awarded by letter of intent; or is awarded by some other form of written communication.
