ICRI members are recognized around the world as companies and individuals that provide the utmost quality in their products and services. It is this recognition that leads prospective customers to you through ICRI services such as our annual Membership Directory “Who’s Who in Concrete Repair.”

For decades, WVCO has been recognized as an industry leader around the globe. This recognition has enabled us to forge valuable partnerships with leading industry associations and organizations to better serve our customers and memberships by giving us access to the latest technologies, methodologies, and resources.

Our association with International Concrete Repair Institute – (ICRI) is a prime example of how our partnerships make us a better company. The concrete restoration and repair industry has grown from a niche market to an industry all its own and ICRI is the only association in the concrete industry devoted solely to repair and restoration.

It’s global network of members, which include contractors, manufacturers, engineers, distributors, owners, and other professionals have a common goal: prolonging the useful life of concrete through quality repair, restoration, and protection.

ICRI began in February of 1988 at a World of Concrete seminar to address the need for better standards, training and guidelines for concrete repair. In response to these concerns, the International Association of Concrete Repair Specialists was formed.
In 1993 the name was changed to the International Concrete Repair Institute. The organizing members agreed on a statement of purpose, which is:

To improve the quality of concrete restoration, repair and protection, through education of, and communication among, the members and those who use their services.
