Luck Stone to open Virginia quarry in 2017

By |  November 17, 2016

Luck Stone plans to open a new quarry in Prince Edward County, Virginia. According to Luck Stone, the company anticipates the site will open for business in summer 2017.

According to an article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the quarry will be on a 330-acre site that Luck Stone leases and was permitted as a quarry in 2009. The new quarry will provide aggregate materials for construction projects in Southside, Virginia, and for Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College.

Luck Stone partnered with Mellott Co., a mobile rock crushing services provider, to produce aggregate material at the Prince Edward location. Jim Van Ness, Luck Stone’s vice president, says this partnership will help the producer open the location quickly.

“We are excited to open the Prince Edward location to further serve our customers and communities in Southside, Virginia,” Van Ness adds. “It’s been close to 10 years since Luck Stone has invested in a greenfield site, and we are exceedingly confident that the Prince Edward site will enable us to positively impact the region while bringing new opportunities to our associates, customers and communities.”

Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, Luck Stone is one of the largest family-owned and operated producers of crushed stone, sand and gravel in the United States.
