Vulcan Materials Co. received approval for its requested San Emidio Quarry expansion.

The Kern County, California, board of supervisors voted unanimously to allow the company’s expansion, Vulcan says.

The San Emidio Quarry is in Vulcan’s western division, which includes 36 crushed stone, sand and gravel facilities, in addition to hot-mix asphalt facilities. Vulcan’s western division employs more than 850 people throughout the state of California, according to the company.

“The aggregate produced at San Emidio will supply the materials that are vital to infrastructure projects for many generations,” says Brock Lodge, Vulcan’s western division president.

Vulcan Materials Co. is a producer of construction aggregate and other construction materials. It is a member of the S&P 500 index.
