NRCMA hosts 2012 Excellence in Quality Award Contest

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association is now accepting applications for its 2012 Excellence in Quality Award 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, 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.

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

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