The Diamond Quality Commendation is a unique self-assessment program that focuses on plant practices resulting in excellent product quality. As NAPA’s Chairman, Kurt Bechthold noted, “The Diamond Quality Commendation is an honor in which a company, their customers, their employees and the industry can take great pride.” “It clearly demonstrates a corporate commitment to quality.”
NAPA developed the program in 2009. The areas evaluated in the self-assessment process are RAP and aggregate handling, asphalt storage, drying and mixing, air quality, truck scales, silos and control rooms. Earning the commendation exemplifies the idea of a blueprint for excellence to the pavement material that is produced.
R.B. Baker Construction, Garden City, has joined the elite ranks of the pavement industry by earning the coveted Diamond Quality Commendation. The standard of excellence is challenging but can be accomplished with genuine dedication to responsible practices and continuous improvement.
