Carthage Crushed Limestone, located in Carthage, Missouri, is centrally located in the Midwest providing convenience of supplies to a wide range of customers throughout the United States. We specialize in industrial and agricultural minerals consisting of high purity limestone up to 97% calcium content coupled with a low silica content.
Our history is as diverse and high quality as our product. Founded in 1888, our company incorporated in 1926 as the Carthage Marble Corporation. At one time, we were the largest gray marble quarry in the world. In fact, our bluish grey tinted marble can still be found in Missouri's Capital building as well as in many of the federal buildings across this country. Our business evolved following World War II, a time when we experienced rapid growth in the aggregate business-especially due to the development of the new interstate highway building programs. As for today, although we no longer mine to supply marble, Carthage Crushed Limestone still supplies aggregate and fine grind limestone products that are used in building materials, for industrial uses and as a feed ingredient.
Carthage Crushed Limestone supplies product to a variety of major industries, such as glass, fiberglass, roofing products, clay targets, cast stone, animal feeds and fertilizer, to name only a few. We look forward to growing with these industries and others as our current reserves well exceed 50 years.
