Wendling Quarries purchased the assets of Coots Materials Co. (CMC) in Iowa.

For Wendling Quarries, which has existing locations in Iowa and Illinois, the deal came about as a result of a longtime friendship between Dave Coots and Tony Manatt, owner and president of Wendling Quarries.

“Wendling Quarries and Coots Materials have competed in the Benton County area since we bought out B.L. Anderson’s quarries in that area in 1995, but Tony and Dave’s friendship endured,” says Rob Manatt, project manager at Wendling Quarries.

In addition to the Coots Materials team, Wendling Quarries’ acquisition includes a shop and office in Vinton, Iowa, Coots Quarry, Jabens Quarry, Coots Sandpit, additional land and reserves, a portable crushing spread, a stationary wash plant, a stationary sand plant and dredge, and material delivery trucks.

Wendling Quarries currently operates about 100 quarries. Along with the production of crushed stone, sand, gravel and asphalt mix, a growing portion of Wendling Quarries’ business is the processing of recycled concrete and asphalt.
