NRMCA now accepting applications for the 2016 Excellence in Quality Award


NRMCA is now accepting applications for the prestigious 2016 Excellence in Quality Award. A company must be a NRMCA producer member in good standing to participate. Companies can enter as a company or a division. Applicants are asked to respond to a multiple-choice type application form that generates their score, which is then evaluated by NRMCA staff. Companies or divisions that achieve a score of 75% or greater will be recognized at NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks in September in Nashville, TN.


There are several advantages to participating in this award program:

  1. It provides recognition to the companies that maintain high quality standards;
    2. The award criteria can serve as an excellent quality improvement tool for companies; and
  2. Companies have used the award criteria for conducting internal quality audits.
