Permitting Update: South Carolina

The nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates has applied for permits to establish a limestone quarry and processing plant on Addidas Road, less than 4 miles southeast of the Town of Eutawville.

Vulcan Materials Co. was founded in 1909. The publicly traded company has its headquarters in Birmingham, Ala. It produces construction aggregates including crushed stone, sand, and gravel.

In South Carolina, it operates two facilities in Columbia and one each in Belton, Blacksburg, Blair, Gray Court, Greenwood, Lexington, Liberty, Lyman, Moncks Corner, Mullins, North Charleston, Pacolet, Piedmont and Varnville.

A subsidiary, Vulcan Construction Materials LLC, proposes to lease multiple tracts totaling 693 acres from a sister subsidiary called Vulcan Lands Inc.

Of those 693 acres, 451 acres would be developed, 80 acres would be reserved for potential future use, and 162 acres would be used as a buffer.
