What we've been up to lately
Come join the soldiers, citizens and families of the Lawton/Ft. Sill community on April 1 for an exciting and one-of-a-kind 5K, 8K and Fun Run at the Dolese "Richards Spur" quarry. All proceeds benefit soldier and family programs at Ft. Sill.
Through the door or across the equipment yard, current Dolese President Mark Helm didn't get very far when he started with the company before someone started filling him in on the Dolese story.
We are proud of our commitment to our communities. Aggregates Manager magazine asked Tom Dupuis about it last summer.
Did you know that Dolese is one of the top 15 crushed stone producers in the U.S.?
Dolese is proud to once again partner with the Nature Conservancy and other conservationists to protect natural resources.
The National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) recently announced the winners of its 2013 Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards. The program is co-sponsored by Concrete Products Magazine and offers producers recognition nationwide for making outstanding contributions to protecting our environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices.
In the Spring of 2011, Dolese added another branch to its operations in Oklahoma, acquiring one of Tulsa's major concrete companies.
Our quarry at Richards Spur has been a reliable and generous source of stone and aggregate materials for nearly a century, but it's also home to a very different natural resource: fossils.
Dolese's Midtown OKC Batch Plant was the first plant in Oklahoma to receive Green-Star Certification. We're proud of this achievement, and feel that it reflects our history and principles in a way that would make Mr. Dolese proud.
Dolese Bros. Co. was among six organizations honored for their collaborative approach to conservation on the Blue River at the 22nd Annual Environmental Excellence Celebration held Nov. 1, 2012, by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful.
