Uxbridge, Mass.-based Bevilacqua Asphalt has earned the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s (NAPA) Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Asphalt Plant/Site Operations.

A program that recognizes responsible asphalt operation practices and cultivates good community relations, the Diamond Achievement Commendation is a proud accomplishment, according to company owner Steve Bevilacqua.

“We are extremely pleased to have earned this prestigious commendation,” he said. “From the earliest days of this plant’s design and construction, our commitment to both the community and the environment has been at the forefront of our efforts. Attaining this recognition underscores the fact that corporate progress, community relations and environmental stewardship can co-exist.”

NAPA established the Diamond Achievement program in 1999. The self-assessment process addresses six essential facets of the asphalt plant/site: appearance; operations; environmental practices; safety; permitting/regulatory compliance; and community relations. Securing the commendation exemplifies a proven level of expertise in — and a belief in the importance of — each of those areas.

“Earning the Diamond Achievement Commendation clearly demonstrates a company’s commitment to excellence with a community focus,” said NAPA Chairman John Keating. “With this commendation, Bevilacqua Asphalt has joined some elite colleagues within the asphalt industry. Achieving that standard of excellence is challenging, but this shows it can be accomplished with a genuine dedication to responsible practices and continuous improvement.”
