R.B. BAKER CONSTRUCTION CO. EARNS DIAMOND ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Locally-based company recognized for responsible operations, community support
(Garden City, GA) R.B. Baker Construction Company, has earned the prestigious Diamond Achievement award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) in recognition of achievements in responsible asphalt operations, as well as the company’s overall commitment to good community relations.
“This national recognition exemplifies who R.B. Baker Construction is, and the type work we continuously perform,” said Stoy Marlow, Vice-President of R.B. Baker Construction. “And to be honored, as well, for our positive community relationships is something we as a company are very proud of.”
The commendation from NAPA is awarded nationally to companies which model “Excellence in Asphalt Plant Site Operations,” according to NAPA officials.
“Earning the Diamond Achievement commendation enhances both the image of R.B. Baker Construction’s facilities and the image of the asphalt pavement industry. lt clearly demonstrates a corporate commitment to excellence with a community focus,” said NAPA Chairman Kim W. Snyder.
Developed in 1999, the Diamond Achievement measures a company on six key facets of an asphalt plant site: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance, and community relations.
“The standard of excellence is challenging,” noted Marlow. “However R.B. Baker Construction has shown it can be obtained with genuine dedication to responsible practices and a commitment to continuous improvement.”
The company’s partnership with the community is evident in the numerous sponsorships and events it routinely sponsors. In 2011, Baker held its 12th annual Sports Camp for the Bethesda Home for Boys, enlisting many local celebrities and sports figures to provide their time and support to the camp. Through the camp, and the annual golf tournament, Baker has raised more than $1 million for the Boys Home over the past 12 years.
