Project Highlight: IU School of Medicine – Evansville

Evansville, Indiana – Downtown Evansville has been buzzing with the sounds of construction, notably on 5th Street at the site of the future IU School of Medicine – Evansville. Beneath the towering steel beams recently set on the site, a considerable amount of crushed limestone from our Crawford County, Indiana quarries can be found underneath and in the surrounding areas. We are looking forward to seeing the facility come to life in its journey towards completion, expected at the end of this year.  There are many exciting things going on in Downtown Evansville and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.

Steel is up on the IU Medical Center Evansville.

Healthy Weight Awareness

Weigh less for lifeThe 2014 first quarter health topic at the Mulzer Companies is Healthy Weight Awareness.  Coming out of the holidays is a perfect time to concentrate on achieving a healthy weight…not a perfect weight; a healthy weight.  Reducing weight by at least 10% can reduce many chronic health conditions such as elevated blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose.

A free book is available from the Mulzer Wellness Initiative.  Dr. Ann’s WeighLess For Lifebook is available to the first 200 requests.  The book is not a diet in any way, shape or form.

Weigh Less For Life is a comprehensive menu of 21 scientifically-proven eating tips and lifestyle strategies that leverage the most powerful and effective ways to help you rein in your appetite and ultimately eat less.  Eating less and moving more does help to shed unwanted pounds.  The January 10th payroll envelope contained the request form to send in for your copy.  You can also call or email sharieverly@mulzer.com to request your copy.  Limited to one copy per family.

Tell City Repair Shop Rebuilds Equipment

The Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. Tell City Repair Shop stays busy year round rebuilding equipment for use by our employees at all locations throughout the company.  The crew spent the fall and winter months rebuilding a Caterpillar 990 Loader and Euclid R-40 Pit Truck.  To do so, the crew removed all of the components that were to be rebuilt, preformed updates on the frames, repaired all the bearing bores, and completed sandblasting and painting on the equipment. 

The crew is currently in the process of rebuilding another Caterpillar 990 Loader and repairing a recently purchased WA700 Loader.  There were several employees involved in getting these projects completed and the new ones started, including the mechanics at the Tell City Repair Shop, the sandblasters and painters from Tell City Concrete and the entire Tell City Parts Department.
