Charles Luck Jr., Luck Stone

By |  May 8, 2013


In 1923, Charles Luck Jr. purchased the Sunnyside Granite Co. in Richmond, Va., and he ran the company that is currently the 11th largest crushed-stone producing company in the U.S. over four decades. Luck’s company started as a single quarry on the west end of Richmond. Today, Luck Stone operates more than 15 plants in Virginia and North Carolina, and it’s still in the family’s hands. “Our company’s success is based on people, not necessarily machines,” says Charles S. Luck III, current chairman of he board for Luck Cos. “My dad taught me that if you treat people fairly, then they’ll treat you the same.”
