NRMCA Announces Winners of 2019 Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards
Thursday, September 5, 2019

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has announced the winners of the 2019 NRMCA Environmental Excellence Awards. Now in its 24th year, the program offers NRMCA Producer members national recognition for outstanding contributions to protecting the environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices in their operations. The program salutes companies that have not only met, but surpassed, governmental compliance requirements and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and staff investment.

Entries were reviewed by a panel of judges based on electronic images with a written narrative covering 10 evaluation criteria, including site aesthetics, environmental documentation, training, water management, air quality management, returned concrete plan, community relations, concrete delivery and plant sustainability practices. This year’s program provides awards in three categories based on geographical region in which the plant is located (Eastern, Central and Western U.S.). Eligible plants include NRMCA Producer members. The Environmental Excellence Awards program is co-sponsored by Concrete Products magazine.

“The NRMCA Environmental Excellence Awards Program were completely revised two years ago. Rules changes have made it easier for plants to enter, making the competition even tougher. These plants have demonstrated that they are the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to being good stewards of the environment,” said Gary Mullings, NRMCA executive vice president of operations and compliance.

“This is an excellent example of the ready mixed concrete industry’s attention to environmental excellence,” added NRMCA President Michael Philipps. “These winning entries clearly demonstrate the incorporation of environmental management systems into their plants’ operations.”

The honored plants are as follows:

Eastern Region Category: Preferred Materials, Inc. Lakeland Plant, Lakeland, Florida, First Place; Maschmeyer Concrete Company, Orlando/Silver Star Plant, Orlando, Florida, Second Place and R.W. Sidley, Inc., North Canton Plant, North Canton, Ohio, Third Place

Central Region Category: Campbell Concrete & Materials, Hardy Plant, Houston, First Place; Campbell Concrete & Materials, Hockley Plant, Hockley, Texas, Second Place and Cemstone Products Company, Arlington Plant, Arlington, Minnesota, Third Place

Western Region Category: Central Concrete Supply Martinez Plant, Martinez, California, First Place; CalPortland Kenmore Plant, Kenmore, Washington, Second Place and Evans Construction Jackson Plant, Jackson, Wyoming, Third Place

Winning entries will be honored in the fall at ConcreteWorks in Orlando, FL. Honored facilities will also be featured in an article in an upcoming edition of Concrete Products magazine and be listed on the NRMCA website.
