The Southeast Division is a leading producer of aggregates in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and the Bahamas. This division currently operates 42 aggregate production facilities, 13 sand operations, and 10 sales or distribution yards.

The Southeast Division’s origins in Georgia date back to the late 1940s. In 1958, Vulcan acquired the Stockbridge Stone Company forming the basis for its Georgia operations. Our South Carolina roots date back to the 1930s and Campbell Limestone, which was purchased by Vulcan in 1968.
Vulcan has continued to grow since then through the development of greenfield operations, as well as from strategic acquisitions. Among the larger acquisitions, in 2000, Vulcan acquired the assets of Tarmac, adding facilities along the Eastern Seaboard, including significant operations in and around Columbia, South Carolina. The Stockbridge (GA) Quarry and the Liberty and Columbia (SC) Quarry operations have all been in operation in those communities since the late 1800’s.
In 2007, Vulcan Materials Company acquired Florida Rock Industries, Inc., which was originally founded in 1929 by Thompson S. Baker. The Florida Rock purchase added aggregate facilities in Florida and Georgia, and significant cement and concrete operations in Florida and South Georgia. In 2013, Vulcan sold the cement and concrete businesses in the Florida and South Georgia areas to Cementos Argos, with Vulcan retaining all of the Company’s aggregates facilities in Florida and entering into a long-term aggregates supply agreement with Argos.
In 2010, Vulcan acquired Tucker Concrete Company and later Fulton Concrete Company, giving it a significant position in the Atlanta ready mix market.
The Southeast Division strives to have a positive impact on all the communities we serve. We’ve had the privilege of forming business education partnerships with many local schools to help provide additional teaching resources and college scholarships. We enjoy taking a personal role in the education process in the classroom and through guided quarry tours.
We also take great pride in our efforts to preserve the environment. Many of our quarries have acreage set aside as wildlife habitats that are certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council. These habitats provide over one hundred different species with refuge that otherwise would not be available in the surrounding suburban areas. From community service to environmental stewardship, our employees take seriously the responsibility of being a good neighbor to the communities we serve.
We operate our facilities in a socially responsible manner. Visit our Social Responsibility page to learn more about our commitment to the environment, our employees, and the communities we serve. Additionally, Vulcan Materials Company Foundation supports many public and charitable projects such as working with schools, supporting environmental stewardship and encouraging employee involvement in the communities where we have operations.
