All of our members have special talents, but long-time supplier/service provider member Rinker Materials (formerly Forterra Pipe & Precast) goes above and beyond in sharing talents with fellow members of our West TN Region. Not only does Rinker serve as Catering Sponsor for our U of M Tailgate Party and for the Sporting Clays Tournament each year, two Rinker employees—Billy Wallin and Joey Sensabaugh—actually do the cooking for the events, and our great attendance has to be attributed in part to their famous fried catfish, grilled burgers and pork tenderloin! You’ll also find Rinker employees attending luncheons and other events throughout the year. In addition, Rinker (Forterra Pipe & Precast) is the West Tennessee Region Associate of the Year winner for 2020. Thank you to Rinker for your service and commitment to AGC.
