The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published a list of the nation’s top crushed stone producers, basing its latest ranking on data it collected about their 2022 tonnages.

According to USGS, more than 1.55 billion metric tons of crushed stone were produced across the U.S. in 2022. USGS estimates that 2022 crushed stone tonnage to be valued at $22 billion. Production was up 2.6 percent that year – an increase from the 1.51 billion metric tons produced in 2021.

While USGS does not publish crushed stone tonnages by company, the agency says the combined production of the top 100 companies was 1.18 billion metric tons, or 76 percent of the national total. The top 10 crushed stone producers accounted for 767 million metric tons, or half of the nation’s total.

Large, publicly traded companies such as Vulcan Materials, Martin Marietta, Holcim and others again make up the top 10 this year. See which other producers topped the list, who made the top 100 for the first time and who the largest risers and fallers are.
