LafargeHolcim’s Lattimore Materials Stringtown Quarry in Stringtown, Okla has received a gold award and its Presque Isle Quarry in Presque Isle, Mich., with a bronze award at the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) 2018 Excellence in Community Relations Award. The program recognises aggregate producers that help to enhance the public perception of the industry and their individual operations by supporting local communities.
Guy Edwards, CEO of the US Aggregate Construction Materials (ACM) organization, said: “We are thrilled NSSGA has recognized two of our sites for their efforts in building strong, long-lasting relationships within their communities and for always striving to be a good neighbour. Our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work has always been a priority at LafargeHolcim, and we plan to continue being a leader in this area within the industry.”
Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president, said: “Every year, the recipients of the NSSGA Excellence in Community Relations Award demonstrate the benefits of being a responsible corporate citizen and how aggregate operations can be an asset to their local communities. Strong community relations programs, like those at the Stringtown and Presque Isle quarries, are paramount to showing the benefits of the industry to our neighbours.”
NSSGA will recognise gold award recipients at its annual convention on the 4 March, in Texas, who are also eligible for the platinum award.
