In 2013, the Texas Aggregates and Concrete As‐ sociation (TACA) awarded the quarry 1st Place in Safety for the 5A Aggre‐ gates Division and in 2012 the quarry received the TACA Safety Award for Zero Lost Time. Martin Marietta's Beckmann Quarry has a rich history in San Antonio, and has been safely operated for more than 70 years. Major San Antonio attrac‐ tions such as Six Flags Fiesta Texas, The Shops at La Cantera and The Shops at the Rim have been repur‐ posed from parts of the Beckmann Quarry that have been mined out. The quarry continues to safely operate as a neighbor to these properties. "For years, the labor invested in the Beckman Quarry has supported local families throughout our community. I'm proud to celebrate this achieve‐ ment today and to recognize that lo‐ cally sourced materials, produced by local hands, have helped build a strong and growing San Antonio," local Coun‐ cilman Ron Nirenberg said. Martin Marietta employs 360 San An‐ tonio‐area residents, of whom 106 op‐ erate the Beckmann Quarry.
