Says Anderson Columbia plant manager Daniel Barrs of the Tejas Quarry: “We’re steady at around 7,000 to 8,000 [tons] a day. We’re shooting for that 2 million-ton mark, but 1.7 million is probably what we’re realistically going to progress to [in 2022]. Every year, we’re getting bigger to implement the next phase of our plant, which would drastically increase our tonnage.” Photo: Daniel Barrs
