Aaton (trade name)
Explanation:
Apparently a trade name for a 'superior' type of concrete (presumably devised with the idea that 'A'-ton is better than 'B'-ton -- cute).

see e.g.:
Readymix Aaton: die neue Beton-Generation

Die echte Innovation im Betongeschäft: selbst- und leichtverdichtender Beton von Readymix. Und weil er in puncto Wirtschaftlichkeit und Qualität einen deutlichen Mehrwert bietet, heißt unser neues High-tech-Produkt Aaton - der bessere Beton!
