Before the world-class resource represented by Indiana limestone can be transformed into a premier building material, it has to be brought from the earth. That’s a hugely demanding task, requiring skills more than a century in the making.
It’s only possible through the supreme knowledge of our quarry operating team. Excavation on a massive scale at our two active quarries has exposed rich deposits of stone. With specialized equipment and consummate care, experienced quarrymen mark off and cut out individual blocks weighing many tons. Then this magnificent stone is painstakingly transported from the quarry to inventory and further processing.
From start to finish, it’s a rugged process demanding utmost attention to worker safety, environmental protection, and correct handling of the product. Doing it right is a true act of stewardship in itself – one that yields a truly superb building material not available anywhere else on earth.
