Hedrick Helps Out
Posted on February 4th, 2019
Hedrick Industries knows that being in the aggregate business is a significant responsibility for many reasons. We assist in the growth, beautification and modernization of all of our communities. We also can be counted on to respond in emergency situations.
This was the case January 13th at approximately 12:40 am in Weaverville, North Carolina. A fire truck crossing a privately owned bridge ended up in the creek under it when the bridge collapsed – leaving 5 other fire trucks stranded on the other side. Using material provided by Hedrick Industries out of North Buncombe Quarry, a crane was able to stabilize the bridge and recover all 6 fire trucks.
Hedrick would like to take the time to thank Lynn Brooks – a dedicated contract hauler – for stepping up and assisting to haul this material on incredibly short notice on a day off. Hedrick would also like to thank McKinley Wheeler – a long-time employee that can always be counted on to help.
