2018 Excellence in Manufacturing Winners

Twenty-Four Plants Recognized as AEMA Excellence in Manufacturing Awardees

In its inaugural year, 24 AEMA member plants applied for and were awarded the new Asphalt Emulsion Manufacturer’s Association (AEMA) Excellence in Manufacturing Award.

The AEMA Excellence in Manufacturing Award is presented to qualifying plants that meet or exceed AEMA requirements demonstrating best practices in all areas of manufacturing. In addition to providing a measurement of best practices, the award offers plants an avenue for continuous improvement, a demonstration of good corporate citizenship, and a way to display community friendly operations.

AEMA Awards Committee Co-Chair Bob Huitt, Russell Standard Corp., notes, “Earning the Excellence in Manufacturing Award demonstrates a company’s dedication to excellence in all areas of asphalt emulsion manufacturing and tangibly recognizes the company as a contributor to the community.”

Based on a self-assessment application process, reviewed area criteria include plant appearance, operations, quality control, laboratory, environmental practices, safety, and community relations.  Applicants must submit photos of various areas of their plant and signed affidavits from plant and division managers as well as an outside third party.  All applications are reviewed by an Award Committee composed of industry experts to ensure accuracy of assessments. 

AEMA is pleased to recognize the following plants for meeting or exceeding the application criteria and receiving the award:
