Sandvik, Dyno Nobel draw record number to Quarry Academy

By |  December 3, 2013

Sandvik Construction and Dyno Nobel hosted Quarry Academy 2013, their seventh annual event, in San Antonio from Nov. 12-14. Quarry employees and those who serve the industry participated in the three-day technical course. Their experience included a visit to Martin Marietta Materials’ Beckmann Quarry and a featured speaker who focused on safety and leadership.

According to Sandvik, the academy addresses best practices in quarry operations with a focus on systems integration, economic sustainability, process improvement, cost reduction and the use of practical safety as a part of daily work behavior.

“Our goal is to stress post-recession process improvements,” says Jeff Heinemann, vice president of Sandvik Construction. “It’s a tough situation in today’s market. We want to give attendees the tools to address these issues.”
