The company was founded in 1976 by A. J. Brauer Jr. Mr. Brauer was professional stone mason. In order to obtain a reliable supply of stone for his masonry business, he began a quarry operation at the site of one of the company’s existing quarries. Eventually, Mr. Brauer ended his masonry business to focus on the limestone quarry operation. In 1986, A. J. Brauer, Jr. passed away, leaving the company to his wife and his son, 18 year old A. J. Brauer III. In 1988, A. J. Brauer III, and his wife Cindy purchased the company from Jay’s mother. The company was acquired by Materials Marketing Limited in 2012 and the tradition of high quality and fine service continues.
