As part of our continued commitment to safety, Ruston Paving is rolling out a Safety Pledge that is being signed by all employees in each division. This Safety Pledge will then be displayed in our respective offices to encourage employees to always Think Safety.

In signing the Safety Pledge, each employee vows to:

  • Never compromise my own safety or the safety of my co-workers to get the job done.
  • Actively look for hazards, promptly report them and take appropriate action to alleviate the issue.
  • Be a good safety role model for my co-workers, friends and family even when off the job.

Frustration To Satisfaction on 03-24-17Last week, Ruston Paving was working for a local grading company that was widening a road in Graham, NC. At 5:25 this past Friday evening, a frustrated homeowner submitted a message via the Contact Form of our website. It seems this homeowner was tired of looking at her mailbox on the ground and restricted access to her driveway due to the road construction.

Even though these issues were the responsibility of the grading contractor (our prominent blue colored equipment can be misleading!), the message was quickly passed to Mark Rogers, our NC regional manager, who showed an exemplary level of service. Mark immediately contacted the homeowner to fully understand the problem, then called the grading company that was still on site to get the problem resolved. The grading company sent a crew to the home right away, installed the mailbox and smoothed the transition from the driveway to the road. After the grading company called Mark to say the work was complete, Mark called the homeowner back to be sure they were satisfied. All of this happened in the span of one hour, which prompted the homeowner’s follow-up message the next morning!!

As the homeowner so succinctly wrote, “that is some stellar customer service!” It’s no coincidence that kind of swift action and level of service allows us to stand head and shoulders above our competition.

Our MechanicsThe mechanics at Ruston Paving are highly valued members of our team. As you can see in the photos here, mechanics in all of our divisions are still working tirelessly to maintain and improve our equipment. While most of our crew members have a lull in activity during winter months, our mechanics are quite the opposite. They are still hard at work prepping our equipment, trucks, and trailers for the upcoming season and ensuring our crews have safe and well maintained iron to get them through the upcoming season.

We can’t thank them enough for their diligent work!

Christmas Greeting

 

As a way to say thank you to our employees and begin the home stretch of 2016, our Ruston Paving offices have started hosting year end events. Ruston Paving’s Durham division took the lead and hosted a surprise employee appreciation cookout in conjunction with the annual turkey distribution last Tuesday evening. The looks on the faces of the field crews as they came in for the evening to a hot meal and hearty ‘thank you for all you do’ was priceless! Thanks to everyone who helped make the event a great success!

Happy Labor DayAccording to the US Department of Labor, Labor day was first celebrated in 1882 and  ”is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

Our employees certainly deserve that tribute! It is due to their efforts that Ruston Paving has grown to be the strong respectable company it is today. So to our employees, however you chose to spend your holiday weekend, please do it safely as you are truly our greatest asset!

Old Dominion (paving)Old Dominion Freight Line, a nationwide shipping company, was expanding its commercial truck and employee parking lots. Initially D.F. Chase, the general contractor on the job, was soliciting bids to install some thick, heavy duty lifts of stone and asphalt to carry the load of the trucking fleet. However, we were able to save Old Dominion money by proposing to stabilize the subbase with Portland cement increasing the overall structural capacity of the pavement section and enabling a cost savings on asphalt.

Understandably, the company was certainly pleased with Ruston Paving’s ability to think outside the box and deliver a superior finished product.
