Community

Oldcastle Materials continuously strives to serve four key groups: employees, customers, shareholders, and communities. We take our role as a good neighbor very seriously, and our companies are actively involved in their local communities. Our companies work to safeguard the health, safety, and environmental well-being of their neighborhoods and to support the schools, charities, and nonprofit organizations around them.

Employees nationwide devote time and resources to a variety of causes and have helped to improve their communities in many different ways, including feeding the hungry, donating toys and clothing for underprivileged children, raising awareness about life-threatening illnesses, participating in charity walks and other events, and educating students in local schools about the materials industry and associated careers.

Some Oldcastle Materials companies show their support for local nonprofits in a very visible way: themed concrete-mixer trucks that serve as moving billboards for the causes. In addition to spreading their message and raising awareness as they travel to and from work sites, these trucks often are popular attractions at fundraisers and special events.

But community also means the industry of which we are a part, and Oldcastle Materials companies and employees are leaders in trade associations and active proponents of the industry through communication with and education of legislators at the local, state, and national levels.
