The Pennsylvania Aggregates and Concrete Association (PACA) announced that three of its members have received recognition and awards from the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA).
Slippery Rock Quarry – Allegheny Mineral Corp. – Snyder Associated Companies Inc. was named a Community Relations Excellence Awards gold award winner.
For the community relations category, NSSGA recognizes facilities that receive the gold category designation for a period of five years from the time the facility first receives the gold designation for this category. After five years, the facility is eligible to apply for Community Relations award recognition.
Martin Stone Quarries Inc. was selected as a gold winner for the Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Awards in the small operations category.
Allan Myers was given a bronze award for the Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Awards in the medium operations category.
The Sterling Safety Awards recognize member companies that achieve the lowest injury incidence rate for the previous calendar year in their size category. The award was renamed in 2019 to honor the commitment to safety shown through the career of Louis Griesemer. Safety data for the Sterling Awards is provided by MSHA.
“The communities we serve, and safety of the working men and women is something we never take for granted in our industry,” said PACA Board Chairman Bob Housel. “Seeing three of our PACA members receive awards for their commitment to safety and community engagement is a testament to the top-tier companies Pennsylvania has building its communities. I’d like to personally congratulate my fellow board members Jonathan Kolbe of Allegheny Mineral Corporation, Rod Martin of Martin Stone Quarries and Mark Carroll of Allan Myers on their national recognition for the outstanding job they do to protect their workforce and service to the community.”
