Rockydale Quarries Expands Again
Roanoke-based Rockydale Quarries Corporation has announced the acquisition of two quarry locations from C.S. Mundy Quarries Inc. The ownership change was effective July 1.
The new locations will operate as the Rockydale-Flatrock Quarry located in Shenandoah County and the Rockydale-Broadway Quarry outside of Harrisonburg in Rockingham County.
The purchase came 10 months after Rockydale opened a new quarry site outside Charlottesville.
Ken Randolph, president of Rockydale Quarries, says, “After the successful opening of our Charlottesville Quarry, we continued to look for additional opportunities to further expand our core business. The Mundy locations are an excellent fit in our growth strategy and we are excited about the opportunity to serve the Rockingham and Shenandoah County areas.”
With these two new sites, Rockydale has a total of seven quarry locations and an additional lime processing facility. Integrating the two new sites will be very strategic and also create additional synergies between other current locations. Rockydale will maintain the current workforce with plans to add other positions in the near future.
