The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) has allocated its 2018 Excellence in Community Relations Award to two LafargeHolcim quarries. The Lattimore Materials’ Stringtown quarry in Stringtown, Oklahoma was allocated the gold award and the Lafarge Presque Isle quarry in Presque Isle, Michigan, the bronze award.
“We are thrilled NSSGA has recognised 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,” said Guy Edwards, CEO of the US Aggregate Construction organisation. “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.”
NSSGA began its Community Relations Awards programme nearly 30 years ago to recognise aggregate producers that help to enhance the public perception of the industry and their individual operations by supporting local communities.
“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,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president. “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.”
