As we usher in the new year, the Alabama Concrete Industries Association is excited to announce that we will be presenting five prestigious awards at this year’s Annual Business Meeting in April; The Environmental Excellence Award and the Distinguished Plant Award; The Driver Lifetime Achievement Award; The Corporate Safety Award and the Individual Safety Award. The application process is open to all members of the association and their employees. A description of each award and application information is detailed below. Please feel free to call our office with any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone on April 3rd at Wynlakes Country Club in Montgomery.
The ACIA Environmental Awards include the Environmental Excellence Award (EEA) and the Distinguished Plant Award (DPA). The Environmental Excellence Award is presented to the ACIA producer(s) whose company wide environmental policy has best demonstrated environmental excellence and innovative management. The Distinguished Plant Award recognizes considerable environmental improvements to an individual plant where total environmental excellence may not be achieved. Any plant that has made a significant environmental improvement which has positively impacted operations and/or community relations is eligible for this award.
Eligibility: Any ACIA Member may submit application(s) for their companywide environmental policy or environmental efforts at an individual plant in the state.
Categories: The Environmental Excellence and the Distinguished Plant Award will be considered for each category. The two categories are determined by the number of ready mixed trucks that are owned by the company.
Small: 1 to 10 ready mixed trucks
Large: Over 10 ready mixed trucks
Plaque(s) for display at the company and/or individual plant.
