The National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) recently recognized Cemex’s Ready-Mix facilities in Houston and Katy, Texas, with its annual Commitment to Excellence Award. The facilities not only met, but also surpassed governmental compliance measures and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and employee investment. 

"Cemex has shown that the protection of the environment and cultivating good community relations is the responsibility of every employee -- top to bottom," said NRMCA President Robert Garbini. "Cemex’s commitment to the environment was evident to our panel of judges and exemplifies the best there is in ready-mixed concrete production nationwide."  

"We are committed to being proactive with environmental management practices and to working in collaboration with our communities," said Cemex US President Gilberto Perez. "Improving our environmental performance not only strengthens our company and our industry, but it is simply the right thing to do and the right way to run our business."
