Martin Stone QuarriesThe TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce (TCACC) presented Martin Stone Quarries, an aggregate producer in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, with the James K. Boyer Quality of Life Award at the 2020 annual Boyertown Area Progress Dinner.

The event – which was originally scheduled for March 2020 but rescheduled due to the pandemic – drew about 170 local business professionals, school administrators, law enforcement, and town and state officials.

Since 2016, Martin Stone has contributed more than $400,000 to various community organizations. TCACC acknowledged the producer’s contributions that impact the local communities in the Boyertown, Pennsylvania, area.

In addition, Martin Stone was recognized for its commitment to being a responsible corporate member of the community by donating time and materials, as well as financial resources to local nonprofits, parks, recreational areas, community sports, first responders, education and local townships.

Tessi Melchior, executive director of the foundation for Boyertown education and the 2019 award recipient, presented the award. Martin Stone president Rod Martin accepted the award on behalf of his company and family.

Martin Stone Quarries has been mining from its Bechtelsville location since 1953, when Henry Martin leased the property. Eventually, the decision was made to purchase and expand the operation to what is now known as Martin Stone Quarries’ Bechtelsville Quarry. The third-generation, family-owned operation is now led by Rod, Trevor and Travis Martin.
