Our company was founded in 1876. It was built through succeeding generations by people who saw opportunities to grow – and took them. Along the way, we have been blessed with an exceptional group of employees. The business of producing, selling and delivering our products is what it appears to be – hard work!
There’s an old saying that goes something like this, “If you don’t grow it, you have to mine it.” All of us consume natural resources every day, from the toothpaste we use in the morning, to the fuel we consume while driving, to the steak we have for dinner. We use hundreds of man-made products every day, and nearly all are derived in part from some kind of ore that is mined.
As part of this global supply chain, our commitment is to act responsibly and leave the land in good order. We learned many years ago to reclaim the land we use by grading, draining, and seeding as soon as we finish mining. Land has more value to us than profits from the stone, sand and gravel below the surface.
Any company, regardless of its business sector, is only as good as its suppliers. This is especially true when things go wrong – any number of circumstances can and do tilt against getting a project or a product done on time with the highest quality. We see our job as staying ahead of the hurdles our customers face downstream from our plants. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to make sure we are getting it right. It is what drives us. It’s the simplest way to define who we are.
