Best Practice is the cornerstone of continuous improvement in business practices across Oldcastle Materials.
Best Practice is a simple yet powerful process where ideas and experiences are shared companywide about every aspect of our business, down to the smallest detail. By implementing Best Practice we can achieve world-class standards and excel in increasingly competitive markets and challenging commercial climates.
Oldcastle Materials has accelerated the Best Practice program across all divisions and companies with great success and increasingly tangible results. The benefits are huge: not just immediate cost savings, but also innovation in new products, processes and procedures.
The sharing of Best Practice creates a competitive edge. It fosters an environment where people contribute innovative ideas for growth and improvement. Those who participate in the program gain personal fulfillment while helping Oldcastle Materials surpass production, efficiency and safety goals.
Best Practice groups, composed of representatives from each of our divisions, meet to share ideas, experiences, initiatives, new industry practices and technological advances that have worked best for individual companies across Oldcastle Materials.
Best Practice groups concentrate on six business areas:
• Ready Mixed Concrete
• Information Technology
As a growing family of companies, we remain open-minded about change. We must continue to learn, and then share the learning. Oldcastle Materials remains committed to continual improvement through our sharing of Best Practice.
