June 1, 2011
Ogden, UTAH–The Utah Best of State Organization presented Staker Parson Companies with a medal recognizing the company as the “Best of State” in the Manufacturing-Mineral Mining/Stone Quarrying category at an awards gala held June 4. The medal is awarded annually to businesses that contribute to a better quality of life in Utah. Staker Parson, a leading manufacturer of construction materials, is an eight-year recipient of the award.
In a letter addressed to the Best of State judges, Scott Parson, Staker Parson CEO, said, “Despite a challenging construction economy in 2010, we succeeded in achieving significant milestones during the year. Our team is committed to safely build The Preferred Source for our customers, employees, shareholders and neighbors.”
Some of the milestones achieved by Staker Parson during 2010 included recognition for the best asphalt pavement project in the United States by the National Asphalt Pavement Association and continued growth as the company expanded business operations throughout the Utah. The most significant achievement was the company’s safety record, with employees working nearly 3 million hours without a lost-time injury.
Organizers of the Best of State program hope that by recognizing excellence in Utah and sharing examples of success and triumph, all will be inspired to reach a little higher, to try a little harder and to work a little longer to achieve dreams and goals.
“We are proud to base our business in Utah,” Parson said. “We hope to continue to enrich the economy as we safely build quality, service and innovation into every project with which we are involved.”
