Royster-Clark Inc. - Bellhaven, NC

Abundant fish and crab make the coastal zone near Belhaven a seafood lover’s haven. It also makes the workers at Royster-Clark acutely aware of their responsibility to protect the delicate environment.

“We are very conscientious about safeguarding not only our soil and ground water, but the marshland, creeks and rivers that feed our ocean,” say manager, Larry Alligood. “The safety of the fish and crab harvest is vital to this small fishing town. That is why we have invested so much in our containment and dike systems.”

According to Alligood, the key to Royster-Clark’s success isn’t just the vinyl-lined earthen berm, the sloped concrete load pads or the water collection system. It’s the dedication of the whole team.
