Limestone

Ohio’s # 1 Limestone Producer!

With more than 80 limestone, sand and gravel, ready-mix and asphalt facilities statewide, The Shelly Company has the capability of conveniently servicing 81 of Ohio’s 88 counties. This logistical spread helps Shelly ensure our safety, customer service, integrity, and quality every step of the way.

Our numerous industry recognition in safety, quality and environment from accredited institutions like National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) and Ohio Aggregates and Industrial Minerals Association (OAIMA) exemplify our commitment to being Ohio’s leader in aggregate production and involvement in the community.

Construction aggregates, including sand and gravel as well as limestone, are vital components for all building and infrastructure needs. While aggregate is used primarily in asphalt and concrete (94% of asphalt pavement and 80% of concrete is aggregate), virtually all construction in America involves the use of aggregate. Every mile of interstate utilizes about 38,000 tons of aggregate. Other paved projects, including smaller roadways and parking lots, also rely on aggregate as a backbone to their product. Building foundations, drainage, sewer lines, dams and shorelines are a few more of the notable construction items involving aggregate.

The Shelly Company is an Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) pre-qualified limestone supplier for residential, commercial, public and energy sectors. Limestone makes up a large percentage of our concrete and asphalt mix designs used to construct asphalt paving and concrete roadways, parking lots, pads and construction projects. Other limestone uses include foundation for structures, footer drains and driveways.

Our customers range from do-it-yourself homeowners to heavy highway construction and infrastructure contractors. You can depend on a safe, friendly and efficient experience at any one of our several limestone quarries.

Our quality control department and its 10 laboratories across the state, composed of highly skilled technicians and state-of-the-art technologies, ensure that we fulfill required specifications for each and every project. Our technicians perform daily production and load-out testing on all our aggregate materials.

The Shelly Company prides itself on being an active member in the community. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of our local communities by supporting activities that make a difference. We instill a hometown approach and stand behind our work.
