The Quality Control team at Augusta Quarry has been recognized as the 2016 Quality Control Technicians of the Year by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
Ensuring only the highest quality products are shipped to its customers in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida – a group that includes large agencies like the Federal Aviation Administration, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Army Corps of Engineers – the team conducted 8,100 quality tests in 2016, according to a statement from the GDOT.
“This team is definitely committed to quality control and to ensuring that GDOT-certified products meet all specification requirements,” said Dwane Lewis, a GDOT branch supervisor.
Loath to take credit for his department alone, Martin Marietta Quality Control Manager Jim Maxwell recognized the efforts of the entire Augusta team.
“We believe it perhaps more appropriate to award the entire plant for their collective efforts in quality as it is widely recognized that a QC technician alone cannot ensure good quality,” Maxwell said.
Augusta Quarry’s Quality Control team consists of Foremen Ben Mooney and Jeremy Simpkins, Senior Inspectors Joe Beggs and Marcus Moss, and Yard Loader Operator Matthew Chalker.
