Florida is a leader in crushed stone production, helping to produce over half of the total 1.33 billion tons of crushed stone annually. With industry leaders like Bedrock Resources, Vulcan Materials, CEMEX, and Titan America, among others, it is no wonder Florida is able to achieve this lofty goal.

As recently reported in Pit & Quarry by Kevin Yanik :

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in 2017 Florida was among the top 10 States that produced over half of the 1.33 billion tons of crushed stone, valued at more than $15 billion. The rest of the top ten states were Texas, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Ohio, Missouri, Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, and Indiana.
There were 1,400 companies that operated 3,700 quarries and 187 sales and distribution yards that produced the 1.33 billion tons of crushed stone.
Of the 1.39 billion tons of crushed stone consumed in 2017, the USGS estimated that over three-fourths of it was made into construction material, mainly going to road construction and maintenance. The rest of the 76 percent went to cement manufacturing, lime manufacturing, chemical and agricultural.
