The US National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) has recognised a number of CEMEX USA facilities for environmental and safety excellence, including two operations that earned the 2017 Environmental Excellence Gold Award.
“Respecting the environment and living up to high safety standards are two principles CEMEX follows everyday, said CEMEX USA President, Ignacio Madridejos. “These facilities serve as shining examples in the industry and make us very proud.”
The Gold Awards were received by the FEC quarry in Miami, and Center Hill mine in Center Hill, both in Florida. NSSGA also recognised the Center Hill mine with Stars of Excellence for earning the Gold Award multiple times in the last five years.
Silver Awards were received by the 474 Sand mine and SCL Quarry, while nine other CEMEX facilities received the Bronze Award.
Safety Excellence Awards were received by eleven CEMEX operations, including the Center Hill mine, which was recognised with a Bronze Award. Five other facilities received a Bronze Award, while five others received a Safety Excellence Certificate.
The awards were presented at the NSSGA’s Legislative and Policy Forum/Fall Board Meeting in Washington DC. Presented annually, the awards recognise aggregate operations for commitment to safety and safe environmental practices.
