The men and women at the Carmeuse Northern Virginia operations of Winchester, Strasburg and Middletown are known for their generosity. But this Christmas season, the people at these three operations went the extra miles as they became Santa’s helpers and held a tremendously successful Toy Drive for the local Toys for Tots program.
The Carmeuse Kentucky operations of Black River and Maysville had great success with their annual toy drive this season. Employees collected a wide variety of donated games, toys, trucks, books, dolls and other gift items in support of the local Toys for Tots chapter. This chapter collects and distributes Christmas gifts for children in seven counties in the region.
When it comes to feeding those in need, the Carmeuse Calcite operation delivers. Literally.
This Thanksgiving, a group of Calcite employees worked diligently to assemble more than 30 complete Thanksgiving meals. The food was provided through donations at local schools. Once the dinners were packed into large containers, the teams of volunteers hit the road to make the special deliveries to families in the surrounding communities.
On November 4th, Mine Safety and Health Administration officials including Assistant Secretary Joe Main and Deputy Assistant Secretary Patricia Silvey, came to Birmingham, AL to attend the annual Metal and Nonmetal Southeast District Safety Conference. The officials also made time to visit the Carmeuse Longview operation.
At Carmeuse, the mantra “Safety First and Always” is more than just a saying, it is the way everyone at the company approaches every aspect of their work. That commitment to safety was reaffirmed on November10, 2015, when the Carmeuse Maysville operation won a National Mining Association (NMA) "Sentinels of Safety” award in recognition of their outstanding mine safety achievements during 2014.
