Luck Stone business expands into Maryland

By |  July 24, 2017

Luck Ecosystems, a business unit of Luck Stone that produces a variety of custom-engineered blended soils and riprap for environmental and recreational purposes, is expanding its footprint into Maryland through a partnership with Chaney Enterprises, a ready-mix, sand and gravel supplier in Maryland.

The expansion resulted when Luck Ecosystems acquired a blended soils production operation that is co-located on Chaney’s sand-and-gravel mine in Waldorf, Maryland. The operation includes a fixed blending plant, along with several pieces of mobile equipment and two dry storage structures. All products from this operation will be sold under the Luck Ecosystems brand.

“Waldorf is well-positioned near the metro area of Washington, D.C., which enables us to easily serve customers throughout northern Virginia and Maryland,” says Nate Salatin, general manager of Luck Ecosystems. “This expansion in partnership with Chaney Enterprises aligns with our strategic growth goal of being the leading blended media and riprap provider in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.”

“Chaney’s high-quality sand products are critical to our business at Luck Ecosystems,” Salatin adds. “We are very excited about the opportunities that this partnership will offer to improve the outdoor experience in communities we serve.”

Hall Chaney, president of Chaney Enterprises, echoes Salatin’s sentiment.

“We welcome Luck Ecosystems to their new operation in Maryland,” Chaney says. “Their unique products are helping us provide our customers throughout Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland with the materials they need to build healthier, greener spaces for a better quality of life.”

According to Luck Stone, Luck Ecosystems transforms natural products such as soil, sand and aggregate from the company’s quarry operations and partner network into high-performance media to naturally filter stormwater, support organic plant growth, optimize sports field play surfaces and prevent erosion on land and shorelines.

“Our customers include civil engineers, construction managers, site developers, landscape architects and sports field maintenance personnel, which demonstrates the diversity of the products that we offer to solve specific application challenges,” Salatin says. “What these customers have in common is the need for eco-friendly materials that perform consistently well, even in the most demanding and unpredictable environments.”

Luck Ecosystems currently produces its specialty products at up to 15 locations throughout Maryland and Virginia, with additional satellite locations planned as needed for future growth.
