History

 

Martin Stone Quarries has been mining material from its Bechtelsville location since 1953, when Henry Martin leased the property. Eventually, the decision was made to purchase and expand the operation to what is now known as Martin Stone Quarries’ Bechtelsville Quarry. In the early years, all of Henry’s sons were directly involved in the daily operation of the quarry. The quarry is currently headed by Glenn and Tom Martin and their respective sons. 

Over the past fifty year, the company has experienced tremendous growth. Operations commenced in 1953 with only three employees producing 75 tons of rock per hour. Today, Martin Stone Quarries has over 60 employees capable of producing in excess of 1.5 million tons of finished product every year.

The growth experienced by MSQ would not have been possible without the contributions of our many dedicated employees. Henry Martin envisioned a company where employees would be treated with respect and gratitude for their hard work, and we take great pride in preserving these guiding principles. It is because of this high regard for our employees that we are able to employ some of the finest men and women in the mining industry. The numerous state and national awards presented to our employees is a tribute to their contributions to Martin Stone Quarries and the mining industry as a whole.

In addition to providing quality materials and services to our customers, we at Martin Stone Quarries are committed to being a responsible corporate member of our surrounding communities. Our time, materials, and financial resources have been routinely donated to the construction and restoration of many local parks, recreational areas, and churches. Educational field trips, offered to any interested school districts, serve to inform local students about the unique nature of the mining industry. Martin Stone Quarries has also opened its gates to local fire companies, allowing them to perform mock rescue drills inside the quarry.

While we are proud of the accomplishments achieved by Martin Stone Quarries in the past, we are always looking for ways to better our company, employees, and local communities. Martin Stone Quarries will continue to provide quality products and maintain its position as a valued member of the many communities that we are part of.
