Producer Excellence

In Quality Award

 

Award Winners

 

 

Purpose

 

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s Producer Excellence in Quality Award recognizes the commitment to quality initiatives of ready mixed concrete producer members. A significant barrier to performance specifications for concrete, determined in the P2P Initiative, has been the qualification level of a concrete producer. This award provides a basis to recognize those that strive for continuous improvement through their quality initiatives. It provides reasonable goals for those concrete producers interested in elevating their own quality management systems.

The criteria for this award are based on the guideline to develop a Quality Plan in Quality Management Systems for Ready Mixed Concrete Companies. Visit the P2P section of this Web site for more information.

 

Eligibility

 

Any (producer) member company or operating division of NRMCA in good standing, producing ready mixed concrete in the U.S., its territories or Canada is eligible to enter. Prior recipients are not restricted from applying for the current year’s award.

 

Application for Award

 

The award application uses a spreadsheet that provides choices for various criteria. Several criteria require supplemental information that should be included with the application to validate the statements made by the applicant. After the application is completed, the accuracy of the statements in the application should be verified by an executive manager in the applying entity.

 

For more information, contact NRMCA's Karthik Obla, NRMCA's vice president, technical services, at 1-888-846-7622, x1163.


Award Criterion

 

The Award criteria have a scoring system based on the responses of the applicant. All applying entities that obtain a score equal to or greater than 75% will receive awards.

Recognition is awarded in three categories based on the annual production of the applying entity:

  • Category A - greater than 1 million cubic yards

  • Category B - 250,000 to 1 million cubic yards

  • Category C - less than 250,000 cubic yards

The award criteria are in these primary categories:

  1. Management Commitment and Decision Process

  2. Customer Focus

  3. Human Resources

  4. Production Facilities and Equipment

  5. Materials Management and Testing

  6. Specification Review and Mixture Design

  7. Measurement Analysis and Improvement

Companies or divisions that achieve a score of 75% or greater will be recognized at NRMCA's ConcreteWorks held in September.
