The manufacturer of concrete products has unusually favorable opportunities for controlling the quality of his product with precision. He has a permanent plant, protected from the elements. Ample space is generally available for storage of aggregate and cement. He is able to choose from available materials, and by reason of the steady market which he establishes, he can demand the kind of materials needed. Frequently he produces his own aggregate, in which case its quality and uniformity is limited only by the quality of the supply and the attention which he is disposed to give to it.
