OKLAHOMA CITY — The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) named Dolese Ready Mix Operations Manager Gaylan Towle the recipient of its first ever Safety Award at the NRMCA ConcreteWorks Conference in Grapevine, Texas last month.
“Mr. Towle’s longtime commitment toward safety in the ready mixed concrete industry and his insistence that safety should be measured not by safety compliance but by the presence of safety, makes him the ideal recipient of NRMCA’s first ever Safety Award,” said NRMCA Executive Vice President of Operations and Compliance Gary Mullings.
“At Dolese, developing a company culture focused on safety is a vital part of our success,” said Mark Helm, Dolese president and CEO. “Towle's NRMCA recognition is well deserved as he has played a critical part in helping to improve and enhance this safety culture at Dolese. Towle’s efforts have put us on track to being a leader in the industry in terms of our safety results. We are proud of Towle’s achievement. His contributions are working to raise the safety of our employees which in-turn benefits the communities in which we operate.”
“If we emphasize safety, imagine the impact we can have on employees, the business and the community,” said Towle. “Decades from now, employees will know that working safely is the only way Dolese does business.”
Towle has been with Dolese since 1982. In those 35 years, he has held many positions, including laborer at the recycle plant, a member of the internal construction crew, mixer driver, technician, concrete materials specialist, general manager of the Kansas division, manager of research and development, general superintendent of concrete operations and director of operational health and safety.
