Mulzer Sponsors Perry Co. Habitat ReHab Home in Tell City

President Ken Mulzer, Jr. presents Crawford Co. Habitat with a $20,255.80 donation at our first annual charity outing in 2019.

Mulzer Family of Companies has been proudly supporting local Habitat for Humanity chapters for over 40 years, and in 2019, we created the First Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing to raise funds for one local chapter within our operating region.  100% of the funds raised are donated and our first chapter recipient was Crawford County Habitat for Humanity.

The Second Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing took place on-line last year, however we were still able to raise over $20,000!  Perry County Habitat was chosen as the recipient and they were able to quickly put those funds to use by purchasing an existing home near our Main Office in Tell City, Indiana that was to become the first ever ReHab project for Habitat in the county.

Josh Harris, Executive Director of Perry County Habitat, gave us the opportunity to bring a crew in for one of the first work days on the project: Demo Day!  22 employees, including interns and their supervising mentors, along with a host of others from all corners of Mulzer Family of Companies showed up on a sweltering hot morning to take down and salvage cabinets & trim, and remove carpeting and drywall.

Employees & interns gather for a group photo after Demo Day at the ReHab home in Perry Co.

Giving back, especially through organizations that provide valuable services & opportunities to all citizens in our communities, is a top priority for employees at Mulzer Family of Companies.  The fact that this ‘new’ ReHab home was literally in our backyard was icing on the cake!

The Third Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing is scheduled to take place on September 22, 2021 at Christmas Lake Golf Course in Santa Claus, Ind.  For more details on the golf fundraiser, click here.

Temple Quarry Goes 5 Years with Zero MSHA Citations

Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc.’s Temple Quarry received industry accolades this week for going five (5) years without a single MSHA citation.  While every organization under the watchful eye of MSHA strives to conclude an inspection with the same result, MSHA’s detailed and systematic approach can often result in very minor citations that simply must be addressed.  For example, aggregate quarries are required to file mountains of paperwork each year to be in compliance with many MSHA requirements.  Think about all of the paper you have to fill out in your daily life or at work and you can understand how easy it would be to accidentally miss a step. Ever had a headlight go out on your vehicle and not notice it during daylight hours?  That’s another example of a MSHA citation that is difficult to catch before an inspection.

To put this achievement into greater perspective, consider that Temple Quarry receives 2 MSHA inspections a year, with each one lasting anywhere from 2 to 3 days – that’s 144 hours of intense, in-depth review a year.  All in, MSHA inspectors have been on site at Temple for over 700 hours in the last five years and haven’t found one single citation. That’s pretty impressive.

Since taking shape in 1978, under the Mine Act of 1977, MSHA has continued to work to reduce injuries, illnesses and fatalities through enforcement as well as active outreach, education & training, and technical support in the mining industry.  Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. values the working relationship we have with MSHA and the shared resources available to help us ensure our employees make it home to their families safely, every single day.   Temple Quarry’s five year record, with zero citations, illustrates an extreme dedication to safety by all employees, those who work at Temple daily and those who are in support roles off-site.  Way to go Mulzer & Temple Teams!

J.H. Rudolph Receives APAI Asphalt Award

The Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana announced today that J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc., A CRH Company, has received a Quality Pavement Award for the 2020 resurfacing project on Folsomville Degonia and N 225 E Roads in Warrick County, Indiana.  Crews placed over 12,000 tons of asphalt over the summer, in exorbitantly high temperatures, creating an award winning, smooth ride in the county.

APAI chooses only a handful of projects, in several different categories, throughout the State of Indiana to recognize each year.  “We are proud to announce that our Folsomville Degonia and N 225 E Roads project was one of the select few in 2020.  This award is a testament to the fine paving, quality asphalt and amazing support our crews, plant personnel, truck drivers and administrative staff provide on every project, especially this one,” commented Vice President Chad Hubert.
