Rock and Block Tour - The Journey is the Desination

Between December 11 and December 27 we completed a five thousand mile driving tour from Napa, California to Austin, Texas and back, visiting thirteen dimension stone quarries and fifteen concrete block plants. The goal of the tour was to investigate how we could establish production partnerships between Watershed Materials and the sources of our raw materials - the quarries and production plants for the dimension stone industry. Additionally, we visited traditional concrete block plants to see the facilities, speak to managers, and learn how they were laid out.

Read the posts to discover details of what we learned and see pictures of who and what we saw. It was a tremendous learning experience about the possibilities of expanding Watershed Materials across the U.S. and beyond.
