Rockydale Quarries Corp. acquired two quarry locations from C.S. Mundy Quarries Inc. The ownership change is effective July 1, 2011. The new locations will operate as the Rockydale-Flatrock Quarry located in Shenandoah County, Va., and the Rockydale-Broadway Quarry located outside of Harrisonburg, Va., in Rockingham County.
“After the successful opening of our Charlottesville Quarry, we continued to look for additional opportunities to further expand our core business,” said Ken Randolph, president of Rockydale Quarries. “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.”
The purchase comes just 10 months after Rockydale opened a new quarry site outside Charlottesville, Va. 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 create additional synergies between other current locations, according to the company. Rockydale will maintain the current workforce with plans to add other positions in the near future.
Rockydale Quarries Corp., headquartered in Roanoke, Va., has been serving customers in Virginia and the Carolinas for more than 79 years. Rockydale currently has locations operating in Roanoke, Staunton, Appomattox, Charlottesville, and Franklin County.
