Ohio state Rep. Dorothy Pelanda and Pat Jacomet, executive director of Ohio Aggregates & Industrial Minerals Assoc., visited with The Shelly Co. management team at the York Center limestone quarry on Dec. 2.
As a community member and farmer, Pelanda paid close attention to what she was learning about the everyday impact of Shelly’s stone products. For example, farmers use aglime, a product from limestone, to balance the ground pH levels for new crops. The limestone produced at this quarry was used in a local vendor’s parking lot.
“It was a great honor to have Representative Pelanda visit our facility and to familiarize her with our safety culture and business processes,” said Lyle Snyder, Shelly Co. Northwest Division general manager. “Creating opportunities to educate on the important role of aggregates — such as limestone, sand, and gravel — in our communities is an important aspect of The Shelly Co.’s open-door policy.”
