Dolese Bros. invests $20 million in Coleman Quarry

By |  July 20, 2015

Dolese Bros. Co. held a grand reopening ceremony at its Coleman Quarry in Oklahoma. The ceremony celebrated the more than $20 million investment made in upgrades to the Coleman operation.

The Daily Ardmoreite reports that Governor Mary Fallin, Secretary of Transportation Gary Ridley and federal, state and local officials from the surrounding communities attended. Dolese president Mark Helm spoke on the economic drive the quarry provides for the local community.

The Daily Ardmoreite quotes Helm, “The Coleman Quarry is important to the company and region, supplying crushed stone products that form roads, bridges, schools, medical and recreational facilities, and our homes. These products make our communities a comfortable place to live, work and play.“

The facility was more than 30 years old and had grown inefficient. New equipment will work to make the Coleman operation more productive by improving energy consumption and increasing job safety.
