CASE CX750D Excavator Produces Blue Granite and Revenue

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in South Carolina, Oconee County Quarry has served its community—and its customers—since 1948. Owned by the county, the quarry is in the unique position of providing stone (blue granite—South Carolina’s state rock) to meet the county’s needs, as well as supplying aggregate products to local residents and business owners. The quarry is, in a sense, a massive piece of local infrastructure that returns profits directly to its citizens.

“I take a lot of pride in the fact that we are here for the citizens. We are not out to make every dollar we can make,” says Billy Buchanan, assistant manager, Oconee County Quarry. “Our goal is to provide stone for the county. That’s our first goal. Second goal is to sell as much as we can because the more rock we sell, the more we can put back into the general fund and people’s taxes are lower because we exist.”

CTI has also expanded to include both ready-mix and recycling divisions. “Our paving side is kind of our bread-and-butter now, but we also have a pretty good size of commercial crews that do [data centers], your bigger warehouses, [gas stations]—a lot of that,” explains Charlie Knudsen, paving operations manager, CTI. “So we do a little of everything. We even started recycling back about five years ago, where we crush our own stone. And then we have a sister ready-mix company so we can haul our own concrete also.”

Atascadero High School Student Restores 1958 CASE Terratrac Crawler Dozer

Casey Havemann loves to get his hands dirty. He learned to ride a quad at the age of 2, and has grown up around machinery his entire life. Five years ago, his older brother got involved in the JB Dewar Tractor Restoration Education Program and entered a restored Oliver Cletrac tractor/dozer into the annual competition at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. Casey was so impressed that he wanted to restore a tractor on his own, and that year he restored a 1959 David Bradley tractor. He was only 12 years old.

“I tore down the whole thing and painted it and then put all new parts on it. I had lots of fun rebuilding that tractor,” Casey says. “One year later, I started on my 1951 Farmall Super C, which taught me so much more about motors and transmissions. I was really excited and happy I was finally a part of the Tractor Restoration Education Program.”
