COMPANY OVERVIEW

In October of 2004, I needed to make pier footings for my cabin in northern Minnesota. The building site was located in a wet area and I needed pier forming tubes that could withstand the ground water. After an extensive search, I found that there was no such product on the market. Thus, the idea for the Ceme-Tube was born. After two years of research and development, the CEME-TUBE™ is finally being manufactured and is now available to the commercial and public markets. Try the CEME-TUBE™ on your next project involving pier footings; I am sure you will find it is far superior in every aspect to the conventional cardboard forming tube.

-Jim Bradac, Inventor of the Ceme-Tube.
