NSSGA to Award National Honors to Outstanding Operations

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 4, 2016 — The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) today recognizes the outstanding aggregates operations in the United States and Canada for an extraordinary commitment to safety, superior environmental stewardship and community involvement in 2015.

“It is our pleasure every year to highlight these companies for their innovative ideas and programs that improve safety, efficiency and relationships with their community and neighbors,” said Michael W. Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO. “We encourage our members to share their best practices and new ideas throughout the year so that our entire profession continues to improve operations and community relations.”

The Gold, Silver and Bronze level recipients of NSSGA’s Safety, Environmental and Community Relations Excellence Awards are proudly noted below. A Platinum Award will be awarded to one company from the Environment and Community Relations categories live at NSSGA’s 2016 Annual Convention and AGG1 Academy & Expo General Session I in Nashville, Tenn., on March 21.
