Alexandria, VA– January 22, 2020 – The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) has named Jose Bermudez of U.S. Concrete West Region (Central Concrete Supply Co.), the 2020 Ready Mixed Concrete Delivery Professional Driver of the Year. A panel of industry judges selected Mr. Bermudez as the top driver from a group of outstanding applicants from across the United States. Mr. Bermudez, whose home plant is U.S. Concrete’s San Francisco facility, was honored for his career achievements, outstanding safety record, professionalism, driving competency and customer service skills. His extraordinary safety record includes a 36-year career without any at-fault accidents, on-the-job accidents or at-fault rejected loads. Remarkably, Mr. Bermudez (at right) has hauled an average of more than 15,000 yards of concrete annually over the past three years. On Mr. Bermudez’s application, Central Concrete Supply’s Operations Manager Joe Cerrito wrote, “Jose is a conscientious, dedicated, top-performing concrete mixer driver, always exhibiting an outstanding level of safety, service, professionalism and follow-through with a most congenial, positive attitude.” The judges were also impressed with his letters of recommendations which included one from contractor Tony Lecue (Tony’s Concrete Pumping) who wrote, “Twenty-eight years ago, I wanted to be a concrete mixer driver. I received my permit and the first instructor I had was Jose. When exceptional people with the gift of integrity walk into your life, you take notice.”


The judges also selected two runners-up. In alphabetical order, the first is 18-year veteran driver Joseph Anderson, from Capital Concrete, Inc. in Norfolk, VA. Mr. Anderson (at left) has an impressive safety record, never having a vehicle accident or rejected load. Mr. Anderson has been named Capital Concrete Top Hauler of the Year seven times. Capital Concrete’s Tina Harvey wrote, “Joe leads by example and as part of our Safety Team is constantly looking to better our safety program.”


Also honored as a runner-up is 19-year veteran mixer driver Mitchell Scott McCarty, of U.S. Concrete West Region (Right Away Redy Mix), in Union City, CAMr. McCarty (at left, wearing sunglasses) has a memorable safety record, never having a vehicle accident while delivering an average of 6,500 cubic yards annually over the past three years. Mr. McCarty is a recipient of the 2019 Right Away Redy Mix Driver of the Year Award.


As the winner of the 2020 award, Mr. Bermudez will receive a $5,000 check from the Truck Mixer Manufacturers Bureau. As runners-up, Mr. Anderson and Mr. McCarty will each receive a check for $1,500.
