One-hundred-acre Georgia quarry sold

By |  January 23, 2014

Stephens MDS LP acquired the 100acre granite quarry in College Park, Ga., from Bluegrass Materials Co. The transaction closed Jan. 22 for an undisclosed sum.

According to a press release, Bluegrass Materials had purchased the quarry along with three other Atlanta-area quarries from Lafarge North America in January 2013. The quarry in College Park has at least 40 years of commercial life remaining, says Stephens MDS.

Stephens MDS says it owns property bordering the granite quarry and has used it to operate a waste management operation that includes construction demolition disposal, recycling and aggregate sales. The recycling operation accepts and recycles soil, rock, concrete, asphalt and other building debris and resells the processed products to the construction industry for reuse.

Stephens also mines and sells its own aggregate on site, previously operating in competition with the adjacent quarry Stephens now owns.
