Dr. Brock was honored by the Tennessee Road Builders Association with the 2013 lifetime achievement award. The award was presented July 18 during a TRBA meeting held in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Given periodically, TRBA's highest honor is given to individuals having demonstrated extraordinary support of the road building industry and association. This year's recipient, Dr. J. Don Brock, only the 18th individual to receive the honor in TRBA's 85-year history, is more than deserving of the acknowledgement.
An industry pioneer, Dr. J. Don Brock holds approximately 100 U.S. and foreign construction machinery and drying patents. His prowess goes way beyond Tennessee's state lines and the 180 different products that Astec Industries and its subsidiaries provide, as Dr. Brock was recognized in 2012 by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). Last September, ARTBA renamed its yearly Transovation Award, which recognizes innovative thinking in the transportation industry, after Dr. Brock.BACK TO ISSUE
