Stone & Company started out in the 1920s as a partnership that brokered lumber and coal. In the 1930s, C.M. Stone bought-out his partner and then his son Wendell joined the team. After serving in World War II, Wendell Stone set-up the original concrete plant which is still operating in Connellsville, Pa. Wendell’s sons, Mark and Greg, took over the concrete operation and started a large expansion of the company in 1989. Today, the producer operates 12 ready-mix plants and has a fleet consisting of more than 55 front- and rear-discharge concrete mixers.
“Our motto is that no job is too big or too small, our employees put in the hard work and effort that make Stone & Company what it is today, we believe that we are all in this together and we all work together to get the job done,” says Adam Stone, production manager.
The cost of disposing waste and washout material has been a major issue in the industry. To combat that, the producer started recycling its waste and washout by crushing and screening old concrete.
Stone & Company is always looking to expand and invest in new technologies. In the past decade it has invested in automated batching systems, GPS tracking units, and late modal road equipment. The producer is always looking to expand into different areas, whether it’s by using portable concrete plants or migrating into new markets.
Stone & Company prides itself on being able to service any job.
“We are a family-owned and operated business and we are a company that likes to work together on a first name basis, from the top down. We like to say that we are all in this together,” says Stone.
