LANHAM, MD — The National Asphalt Pavement Association has announced that Newton Asphalt Manatts Inc. has earned NAPA’s Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Asphalt Plant/Site Operations. 

The Diamond Achievement Commendation is a unique and respected self-assessment program that encourages and recognizes responsible asphalt operation practices and cultivates good community relations. As NAPA’s Chairman Kurt Bechthold noted, “Earning the Diamond Achievement Commendation enhances both the image of your individual facility and the image of the asphalt pavement industry. It clearly demonstrates a cooperate commitment to excellence with a community focus.”

NAPA developed the program in 1999. The self-assessment process addresses six essential facets of the asphalt plant/site: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance and community relations.

Earning the commendation exemplifies the commitment to excellence in all aspects of asphalt facilities and symbolizes continuous improvement in operations and community relations. All asphalt plants/sites are eligible to earn the commendation.
