White Rock Steps Up Production In Miami
(4th Quarter 2004)
Florida is the second largest consumer of limestone aggregate in the nation. The state is also the second largest producer, but the heavy demand still outpaces available supply.
To help the construction industry meet the demand for quality aggregates, which are used in road base, asphalt pavement, concrete and cement, White Rock Quarries has significantly increased its production capacity.
With the completion of its second processing plant, White Rock is now the second largest single-source quarry in the state and country.
Built in less than six months, the new plant greatly increases White Rocks production capacity, helping ease South Floridas shortage of limestone products.
White Rock also added an inbound scale and two outbound scales to handle the increased truck traffic.
