State-of-the-Art Fabrication Facility

During World War II, Kansas was a major United States Army Air Force (USAAF) training center of the USAAF fighters and bombers. Herington Army Airfield was 1 of 15 airfields under the command of Second Air Force, between 1942 and 1945. After the war ended, most airfields were sold or turned over to local communities. In 2001, U.S. Stone Industries purchased the old hanger in Herington, KS. Herington was, and still is, a desirable location for a facility due to the central proximity to various quarry sites.

Eight Kansas Limestone Quarries

Kansas’ diverse limestone resources were formed over 500 million years ago on the shallow ocean floor, then known as the Permian sea. Only a small percentage of this resource has been quarried over the last century, and U.S. Stone Industries has emphasized sustainability and reclamation of the land along the way. 

U.S. Stone Industries operates eight quarries to provide a wide range of colors and appearances.
