WICHITA — Cornejo & Sons has purchased Durbin Quarry in Moline, Kan., from Harshman Construction.
“We were their biggest customer and have been since its inception at that quarry,” says president Marty Cornejo. “We finally cut a deal where we ended up buying it.”
The quarry is capable of producing a million tons a year.
Cornejo says his company will bring rock, which the state has approved for use in building and road construction, to Wichita by rail.
“We’ll take it from here and push it on to western Kansas and wherever else we’re able to,” Cornejo says. “It does give us more ability to market the material.”
