Conners Crushed Stone converts limestone that runs throughout Texas into high quality aggregate.
The company, located near the small town of Lott, 25 miles south of Waco, has been quarrying and crushing limestone for over 25 years. The company’s five quarries use Volvo Construction Equipment machines to keep operations running efficiently.
The Conners quarry in Oglesby produces a limestone mix from a rare deposit that is high in calcium carbonate and low in iron and magnesium. The 350 acre quarry produces five types of limestone in a range of sizes. A Volvo L250G, L180G and two L180Es work together to keep up with demand for Conners’s product, transporting quarried limestone to a crusher that is working at maximum capacity.
At Conners’s 440 acre quarry in Reagan, four more Volvo CE machines are used: an L220E, L220D, L180D and a new L220G move rock from the face to the jaw crusher.
The aggregate produced by Conners is sold mainly as hauling stone for oil pad bases. The company also works with the Texas Department of Transportation, providing stone for a US$4.8 million multi-phase highway improvement project in the state.
