The Pit & Quarry Roundtable & Conference took place Jan. 12-14 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., uniting aggregate producers, manufacturers and allied trade representatives in an idea-exchanging forum.

The event, which was sponsored by Am Cast, Philippi-Hagenbuch, Sandvik Mining & Construction, Superior Industries and Terex Minerals Processing Systems, drew more than 40 people to the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs, where solution-oriented discussions were had in two roundtable formats on the economy, employment, mine safety and other topics.

Content from each roundtable will be available in upcoming issues of Pit & Quarry magazine.

In addition to the roundtables, attendees heard briefly from Mike Johnson, president and CEO of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association, who addressed the FAST Act’s impact and the role of regulatory agencies. Mike Heenan, an attorney at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart who also serves as Pit & Quarry‘s legal editor, participated in a safety-focused question-and-answer session. And George Reddin, a managing director with FMI Capital Advisors Inc., offered an economics summary and a look ahead to this year and beyond.

The site of the next Pit & Quarry Roundtable & Conference has yet to be announced, but aggregate producers interested in attending can email Editor in Chief Darren Constantino at dconstantino@northcoastmedia.net. Manufacturers and dealers interested in attending or sponsoring the next roundtable can contact Publisher Rob Fulop at rfulop@northcoastmedia.net or Associate Publisher Dino Vitanza at dvitanza@northcoastmedia.net.
