The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association [1] is now accepting applications for its 2012 Excellence in Quality Award [2] competition. Open to NRMCA producer members, the award provides a basis to recognize those companies that strive for continuous improvement through their quality initiatives.

A company must be an NRMCA producer member in good standing to participate. Companies can enter as a company or a division. Applicants will respond to a multiple-choice type application form to generate their score, which will then be judged. Any company with a score of 75 percent or greater will be recognized at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks Conference & Expo [3], scheduled for September 15-18 just outside Washington, DC.

Advantages of participating in the competition include recognition to companies maintaining high quality standards and award criteria as a quality improvement tool and internal quality audit for companies.

The 2012 award application form features some changes from the previous years, based on quality-related discussions by NRMCA’s Research, Engineering and Standards Committee [4].

Applicants can download the award submission form at NRMCA’s Excellence in Quality Award web page [2]. Completed award forms should be emailed in the original Excel format, along with required supporting documentation, to Karen Bean at kbean@nrmca.org [5].

The deadline for receiving completed award applications is Saturday, June 30.
