Martin Stone Quarries expects the demand for our aggregate products to stay strong through the end of 2020. We see the warehousing market continuing to expand as the pandemic has shifted buying habits away from brick-and-mortar stores. Road construction in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey is strong for us this year, but there are some concerns for 2021 and beyond due to decreased gas tax revenues because of shutdowns. 

With the increase in warehousing, we see a decrease in office and retail construction as consumers and businesses adjust to the effects of the pandemic. Overall, we see a good end to 2020 where we will be able to continue to keep all of our employees working.

Editor’s note: As part of our Road to Recovery coverage, P&Q is turning to some of the industry’s leaders for their takes on the road ahead. This month, leaders were posed with the following question: What is your expectation for aggregate demand in the coming months? Where do you anticipate the greatest demand to come from, and are there areas where you anticipate demand shortcomings?
