We're all in this Together

As the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates and a major producer of other construction materials, our products form the building blocks for our country’s roads, bridges, homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings and places of worship. Our coast-to-coast footprint is vast, but it’s the everyday actions of our more than 7,000 employees that sets us apart. When it comes to making good on our commitments to people, safety, health, the environment and the communities we serve, we’re all in this together.

“It’s not a job. It’s a commitment to each other.”

-THOMAS HOGUE, Haul Truck Operator, 37 years of service

Doing the Right Thing is the Only Way




While much has changed since our founding as a public company in 1957…

What has not and will not change about us is our core belief – forged from the beginning – that doing the right thing is the only way to do business. We owe that to our people, our customers, our shareholders and our communities.

Today, as the largest producer of construction aggregates in the United States, we have a coast-to-coast footprint and a strategic distribution network that is aligned with and serves the nation’s growth centers. We hired 800 new employees in 2014 and enjoy strong momentum as the nation recovers from the Great Recession. 

At Vulcan Materials Company, stewardship at work means rolling up our sleeves and doing the job the right way. Our people are essential in carrying out that mission. More than 7,000 strong, our Vulcan family is the driving force behind the contributions we are making in hundreds of communities across North America. Investing in and fostering a culture of integrity, excellence and inclusion is a top priority for us.

Our steadfast commitment to enduring values – from safety, health and environmental stewardship to the wise use of natural resources and the strengthening of our communities – is reflected and reaffirmed in the following pages.

And as we continue to build on our legacy, we do so with a clear view of our responsibility to future generations, to the planet and to people – our own and the many we touch.

Sincerely, J. Thomas Hill

Chairman of the Board, President & Chief Executive Officer

Our Commitments

Safety, Health & Environment

Protecting the health and safety of people and the environment guides us in everything we do. It goes far beyond regulatory compliance. It’s a personal responsibility we have to one another, our families, neighbors and the community. Our people lead the way. Their expertise, dedication and best practices are the reason we are a longtime industry leader in safety, health and environmental performance.

People

At Vulcan, leadership doesn’t just come from the top. Our people understand that actions matter. They share a competitive drive for excellence that fosters an environment of trust, teamwork, positive reinforcement and inclusion. Ours is a culture of mutual respect, integrity and commitment that drives our growth and success.

Natural Resources

Working with the land is the crux of our business. Mining is an interim use of the land. Good stewardship means taking a holistic approach that bears in mind the present and the future.

Community

Strong communities are built on the actions of individuals. Our people are proud to contribute to the communities in which they live and work in big ways and in small – from disaster relief and emergency management to educational and social causes. At Vulcan, it’s more than just financial support. Our people volunteer their time and talent.
