Luck Stone Announces New Location Opening In Prince Edward Co., VA


Farmville, Va., November 15 - Luck Stone announced today that they will open a new quarry in Prince Edward County, approximately five miles west of downtown Farmville. Luck Stone anticipates that the site, which is conveniently located along U.S. Route 460, will be open for business in the summer of 2017. Land development activities are planned to begin this fall. The 93-year-old company that is widely known for innovative, industry-leading practices will be partnering with mobile rock crushing services provider, Mellott Company to produce the aggregate material at the Prince Edward location. Jim Van Ness, Vice President at Luck Stone, describes this investment and community partnership as an approach that lines up with Luck Stone’s vision. “As a customer-inspired business, we believe it’s our responsibility to provide people with the products they need, when they need them most. We are excited to open the Prince Edward location to further serve our customers and communities in Southside, VA,” said Van Ness. “Our partnership with Mellott enables us to maximize our resources and quickly open the gates at Prince Edward,” he added. Luck Stone aims to contribute to the growth of Prince Edward County, the town of Farmville and greater Southside Virginia. Endeavoring to support the ongoing expansion at both area schools, Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College, as well as related local projects and future infrastructure growth, Van Ness noted, “it’s been close to 10 years since Luck Stone has invested in a greenfield site and we are exceedingly confident that the Prince Edward site will enable us to positively impact the region while bringing new opportunities to our associates, customers and communities.”
