VINTON — Coots Materials Company employees were recognized at the Iowa Limestone Producer’s Association’s 74th Annual Convention recently held in Iowa City.

Coots Materials employees operating in Plant #1 in Benton County were honored for working the entire year of 2018 without a lost-time accident.

The Iowa Limestone Producers Association sponsors a safety contest each year to give recognition to those member companies and employees who strive, as part of their every day activities, to work safely. This increased emphasis on safety has been a major factor in changing quarry work from a dangerous occupation to where it is one of the safest places to be employed in Iowa.
