History of Bryan Rock

Bryan Rock Products, Inc. began in 1941 as W.J. Bryan and Son, a partnership between W.J. Bryan, his brother, Charles S. Bryan and his son W.L. (Red) Bryan. At that time, Red was appointed president, a position he held for over 40 years.

The first operation was in Red Wing, Minnesota, and supplied agricultural lime to Rice, Dakota and Goodhue Counties. The business was incorporated as Bryan Construction Company in 1946 when the partners purchased their first portable crusher and began bidding on roadwork.

Starting with hammermill, a few wheelbarrows, two trucks and three strong backs, they started their venture to becoming the leading supplier of a full range of limestone products. With steady growth and expansion, the first permanent quarry operation was acquired in Shakopee, MN in 1949 to supply the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan market. Short after, in 1952, the company changed its name to the present, Bryan Rock Products, Inc.
