Annually, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) recognizes chemical industry leaders for their exceptional health, safety, security and environmental (HSSE) performance and commitment to sound chemicals management. For 2018 Eagle Transport Corporation, headquartered in Rocky Mount NC, was the recipient.
The Responsible Care Partner of the Year Award recognizes superb performance and the safety record of companies involved in the distribution, transportation, storage, use, treatment, disposal, and/or sales and marketing of chemicals. Eagle has been Responsible Care Certified since 2015 and displays impressive leadership and perpetual enhancements within the Chemical Industry.
