Vulcan Materials hosts Chinese delegation

By |  December 18, 2012

Vulcan Materials Co. hosted visitors from China in October at its quarry in McCook, Ill., sharing best-practice strategies for aggregates mining and production.

A delegation of Chinese government officials visited as part of a program the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) developed. The delegation visited Vulcan’s McCook Quarry for a firsthand look at how the company deploys technology and engineering to produce construction aggregates in a safe and socially responsible manner.

“I like to consider it a humanitarian effort,” says Carl Vizza, director of professional learning programs at IIT. “It’s important to lead by example, because in their country, reform will have to come from within.”
