DUNHAM’S ASPHALT SERVICES, INC. Earns Diamond Achievement Commendation
Tulsa, OK — Dunham’s Asphalt Services, Inc. announced today that its asphalt plant—located in Sand Springs, OK, has earned the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s (NAPA) Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Asphalt Plant/Site Operations.
“Dunham’s Asphalt Services, Inc. is committed to excellence and humbled to receive this recognition from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA). We will continue our efforts to provide extraordinary services to our clients while growing our business and remaining a top player in quality, safety and integrity throughout the State of Oklahoma” said Business Development representative Ryan Quattrocchi.
The Diamond Achievement Commendation is a nationally recognized and respected program that encourages and recognizes responsible asphalt plant operational practices and cultivates good community relations. Developed in 1999, the self-assessment process addresses five essential facets of an asphalt plant and its surrounding site: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, and community relations.
Earning the Commendation exemplifies a company’s commitment to excellence in all aspects of an asphalt facility and symbolizes continuous improvement in operations and community relations. NAPA Chairman James Winford stated, “It clearly demonstrates a corporate commitment to excellence with a community focus.”
Plant has been repainted, and large cautionary signage was placed along the perimeter of the plant to increase driver safety and awareness. We screen our fencing with mesh coverings from top to bottom in order to enhance the appearance of our plant while maintaining dust control from their neighbors. The plant uses warm-mix asphalt to reduce emissions and energy consumption. In addition, we use reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), which replaces virgin materials and further reduces our energy usage.
“We take great pride in this accomplishment. It is truly a testament to our exceptional employees,” said Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Call.
