VULCAN Materials Company’s Dolcito Quarry in Tarrant, Alabama, has become the only facility in the US to receive a three-star award –– the highest possible recognition –– in the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) Stars of Excellence Awards programme.
The Stars of Excellence programme began in 2001 as a way to recognize facilities that had received multiple, highest-level safety, community relations and environmental awards from the NSSGA over a five-year period.
Dolcito’s three stars acknowledge receipt of two community relations excellence awards and an environmental excellence award.
Vulcan’s Southern & Gulf Coast Division president, Mike Clarke, said: ‘The employees of Dolcito Quarry exemplify the commitment we have to being a valued part of our neighbouring communities.
‘I’m very proud of these employees and the national recognition they have received for their efforts.’
