Ty Smith Wins 2024 NC Aggregate Golden Shovel Award!

We are thrilled to announce that Ty Smith, VP of OTR Operations and Sales at McCarthy Tire Service has been awarded the prestigious 2024 NC Aggregate Golden Shovel Award! Established in 2015, the Golden Shovel Award celebrates those who consistently go above and beyond to support the Association.

Mr. Smith boasts an impressive 36+ year career in the Aggregate Industry. A true industry aficionado, his passion for the field is undeniable. But his dedication extends far beyond professional pursuits. Family and friends hold a special place in his heart, and he is widely known for his unwavering support of colleagues during their times of need.

Ty is admired by his fellow McCarthy Tire Service team members for his humility and dedication to teamwork. He thrives in collaborative environments and enjoys the hands-on nature of his work, preferring to be out in the field alongside his colleagues.

His commitment extends far beyond simply showing up. In 2008, when supply chain disruptions caused critical shortages, this individual went the extra mile, traveling extensively to source the necessary items for clients. Despite his fondness for fishing, he readily admits it’s a pastime he has yet to master – perhaps due to his tireless dedication to his work and colleagues!

The McCarthy Tire Service team extends their heartfelt congratulations to Ty Smith, a deserving winner!

“We are incredibly proud of Ty for receiving this recognition,” said John McCarthy, President of McCarthy Tire Service. “Ty exemplifies the values we hold dear at McCarthy Tire Service – dedication, teamwork, and a commitment to going the extra mile. His contributions to our company and the industry as a whole are invaluable.”
