NRMCA Seeks Responses to 2012 Quality Survey for Concrete Producers

NRMCA is now accepting responses to its 2012 Quality Survey. This is the second quality survey; the first survey was conducted on 2010. Only by measuring quality it is possible to improve it and this survey provides a means for companies to do so. The survey has a measurement section which can be used to quantify the benefits of improved quality. Several survey questions establish industry benchmarks for frequency of testing, quality control personnel, quality documentation and equipment monitoring. Producers responding to the survey will be able to compare their systems to these industry benchmarks and improve their processes if necessary.

The survey is sponsored by the Research Engineering and Standards Committee. Survey participants are asked to respond to a multiple-choice application form on a spreadsheet. The deadline for receiving the completed survey forms is Friday, March 2. Survey participants receive 5 points that count toward the 2012 Quality Award if they participate. Survey responses of individual companies will be kept confidential while summarized survey responses will be shared with all the survey participants. A report of the survey results will be published in NRMCA’s quarterly Concrete InFocus magazine.

The survey form can be downloaded from NRMCA's Web site or is available by e-mail from NRMCA’s Shawnita Dickens at A company must be an NRMCA member in good standing to participate. Companies can submit their responses as a company or a division.
