Construction Materials

In March of 2015, John E. Jenkins, Inc. expanded operations with the opening of a granite quarry adjacent to our headquarters off of I-85 in Gastonia. We produce and sell various types of crushed stone as well as other products including asphalt millings, recycled concrete, boulders and fill dirt.  

Our quarry operation creates a competitive advantage for our customers through better pricing, quality and availability of stone used for sitework projects.

We market and sell our stone to asphalt and concrete producers, contractors, home builders, and homeowners. Available products include ABC, #57, #5, rip rap, boulders and screenings. Our ABC stone meets NCDOT specifications. Samples and data sheets are available upon request.
