Chaney Enterprises Accepts Three National Awards

Chaney Enterprises’ CEO, Francis H. Chaney II, was recently presented with two first place awards and an honorable mention at the National Aggregates Associations’ annual convention in San Francisco California. First place was presented to Chaney Enterprises for both the Excellence in Community Education and Pantheon Awards in recognition of their outstanding commitment to providing educational programs and quality local material. The honorable mention was presented to Chaney Enterprises for the Excellence in Community Service Award in recognition of their continuing commitment to providing financial and volunteer support to the surrounding communities. The National Aggregates Association has created these three awards in an effort to acknowledge the outstanding community service and quality products produced by the businesses in the aggregates industry.

The National Aggregates Association is the largest international trade association in the world representing companies engaged in the direct production of sand, gravel, and crushed and broken stone. The organization has assumed a leading role in protecting and advancing interests of the aggregate industry, developing, engineering and research programs to improve the use of industry products, and working with public and private organizations for the development and the establishment of reasonable standards for reclamation of mined areas.

Founded in 1962, Chaney Enterprises is a family-owned and operated business and is the leading supplier of concrete, sand, gravel, stone and concrete block in Southern Maryland. Equal to the company’s commitment to be the best in their business is their commitment to the communities in which their employees live and work. One of Chaney Enterprises’ seven corporate goals is “to be good neighbors by demonstrating community involvement.” To accomplish this goal, Chaney Enterprises provides support to more than 180 non-profit, cultural, medical, environmental, educational, youth, and community organizations and events. In addition, the company’s employees each year volunteer thousands of hours of their time to support community activities.
