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 questions: What does your 2020 crushed stone, sand and gravel production look like to date? Have you seen upward or downward movement on aggregate pricing this year? And do you have an early sense of how production and pricing might fare next year?

Our production volumes as we enter the fourth quarter are marginally less than they were at this time last year – relatively the same, but slightly lower.

Aggregate pricing has been consistent within our markets, and we foresee that to remain consistent into next year. 

I believe 2021 will present us with a lighter workload and slightly less production demand for the first half of the year.

COVID did not present any negative effect on our 2020 clients’ sales, but we expect there to be a residual effect from slower sales this fall that carries into 2021 demand for products.
