Owen Valley Quarry Receives 2014 IMAA Excellence In Mining Award
The Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association, at its 2014 Winter Workshops held at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, recently awarded several RGI locations for their accomplishments in excellence, safety and community involvement.
Morgan County Sand & Gravel in Martinsville was named Outstanding Certified Aggregate Producer by the Indiana Department of Transportation. This location won this same award in 2011. The Certified Aggregate Producer Program (CAPP) is a statistical-based program that is constantly monitored by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) with very stringent compliance requirements for material used in construction projects. This is the fourth year in a row that a Rogers Group location has received this honor. Additional winners include Interstate Sand & Gravel (Williamsport) and Newton County Stone (Kentland).
The Community Connection Award was presented to the Morgan County Sand & Gravel plant. This award recognizes service and involvement in the community and demonstrates efforts above and beyond the regular requirements of the Excellence in Mining Awards.
Seven locations received IMAA’s Excellence in Mining Award, sponsored by the IMAA’s Public Information and Education Committee to promote pride in mining programs. Winning locations include: Bloomington Crushed Stone, Interstate Sand & Gravel, Morgan County Sand & Gravel, Newton County Stone, Owen Valley Quarry (Spencer), Sieboldt Quarry (Springville) and Mitchell Crushed Stone.
