1.) Mike Whitaker, left, and Jim Whitaker represent the latest generation of leadership at employee-owned Whitaker Construction Co. Mike is president and CEO while Jim serves as asset manager. The company, founded in 1953, has a long history in the underground utility construction industry, and it expanded into a number of other areas – aggregate production included – in recent years.

2.) From left: Bolinder Resources’ Bridger and Boone Bolinder offered a look at the plant at their Rocky Ridge Pit located in Tooele, Utah. The brothers represent the third generation of leadership at Bolinder Resources, which has two fixed locations in Utah. Contract crushing is a big part of the Bolinders’ business, as well, with a market focus in Utah and Nevada – but a willingness to crush just about anywhere in the U.S.
