Award-Winning Plants, Community Involvement Are All Part Of Being A Good Neighbor
Being a good neighbor in the asphalt business means more than just complying with the rules and regulations of the industry — although that’s a major part of it, to be sure.
There’s also maintaining a neat appearance with attractive landscaping and well-kept shops and yards. And it’s vital to emphasize safety, as well as sound environmental practices throughout each plant.
For operating its asphalt plants in an “exemplary manner,” Ranger Construction has been honored by the National Asphalt Pavement Association with four “Diamond Awards” — NAPA’s prestigious Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Hot Mix Asphalt Plant/Site Operations.
Each of the four plants entered for consideration received a Diamond Award: Ranger Construction Industries’ Winter Garden, Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach plants; and Ranger Construction — South’s Pompano Beach plant.
“Earning the Diamond Achievement Commendation serves as a signal to neighbors that the facility is a good neighbor,” noted NAPA Chairman Peter A. Wilson.
Ranger’s Jo Moore monitors environmental compliance at the plants. She also oversaw the application process, which included photo/video documentation, community verification, and evaluation by an independent assessment firm.
“Our employees are to be congratulated for this outstanding achievement,” said Leo Vecellio, Jr., CEO of the Vecellio Group.
“The Diamond Awards validate the success of the many quality, safety and environmental initiatives we have in place at our facilities.”
