46 • March 2019 FEATURE READY MIXED Eddie Thompson is based at the Greensboro plant and has worked for Chandler Concrete all of his 32 years as a ready mixed concrete delivery professional. He received the Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015, and is a two-time Chandler Concrete Driver of the Year, most recently in 2017. "Eddie's attention to detail and safety is always high at the plant, on the road and job site," says Chandler Concrete Piedmont Area Manager Dan Goley. "What really sets him apart from his peers is his level of customer service. He is warm, respectful and helpful to his customers every single trip. More customers know Eddie by name and request him more than any other driver I work with." In addition to routine work, Winston-Salem customer Terry Williams of Landmark Builders recalls Thompson's deliveries on an 800,000-sq.-ft. distribution center plus a 500,000-sq.-ft. expansion for the same owner. "Large job or small, I always appreciate Eddie," he affirms. "Not only does he deliver concrete in spec, he does it with a warm and caring attitude. He is one of the best drivers I have had the privilege of dealing with."
