Aggregate Industries is celebrating the success of its employees at a recent Institute of Quarrying (IoQ) awards event.
The IoQ Fellow Lunch and Student Awards saw two of the company’s workers pick up accolades. Dave Owen, an Asphalt Plant Manager at Aggregate Industries, and Katie Sexton, a Graduate Management Trainee, were both awarded for excelling academically in the University of Derby’s Centre for Mineral Products educational programmes.
Dave, who manages a team of 15 across Aggregate Industries’ Astley and Cheshire plants, was awarded the Goodwin Barsby Award. Meanwhile, Katie Sexton, scooped the Peter Preston Award for being the best achiever and receiving the highest overall marks on the core extractive modules within her studies.
Guy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at Aggregate Industries UK, said: “These well-deserved award wins recognise the hard work and dedication Dave and Katie have put into their work and studies. These accolades are an example of not only their successes but also the positive contribution their achievements have had on their respective teams and sites.
“We’re also proud that following Dave’s dissertation results, the Northern Asphalt Team rolled out the use of Warm Mix Additives to a number of sites which have optimised production significantly, as well as improving our sustainability performance. We’re looking forward to seeing the positive impact these employees will continue to have on the business in the years to come.”
