William J. “Bill” Wetta, Senior Vice President of Product Development & Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of DSC Dredge, LLC was awarded the Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award during National Stone Sand and Gravel Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, held February 10-13, 2019.
Deemed ‘The aggregates industry’s highest, most distinguished individual award’, NSSGA established the Wendt award more than two decades ago to recognize individuals who exhibit the dedication and commitment to the industry that Barry Wendt did.
The Barry K. Wendt Commitment Award is the highest and most distinguished individual award the association presents.
“I understand what it means to be on this list,” Wetta said. “This is the only job and only industry I’ve worked at. I’ve been doing this almost 40 years.”
Wetta had the honor of presenting the Barry K. Wendt Commitment award to Tony Basolo with Dolese Bros in 2012. Furthermore, he works with or knows ten previous recipients.
