Celebrating Expansion in Indiana
Acquisition of Elliott Stone Company reinforces Polycor's leading position as the global natural-stone quarrier and further strengthens
its portfolio of hardscapes and masonry products.
QUEBEC CITY -- Polycor Inc., the largest quarrier of natural stone in the world, continues its strong growth with the acquisition of Elliott Stone Company Inc., a leading quarrier and fabricator of limestone based in Bedford, Ind.
The acquisition expands Polycor's ability to bring to market the most-comprehensive offering of natural-stone building products for the hardscapes and masonry industry.
"We are excited to bring Elliott Stone's technologies, processes and industry know-how into the Polycor family," says Matt Howard, President of Polycor West. "This is truly an exciting time for Polycor as our business continues to grow, not only from a product offering standpoint, but from an innovation and experience perspective as well."
Polycor will immediately begin the planned integration of the two companies' facilities, customers and employees to ensure a smooth transition to deliver value for all partners and stakeholders.
Brian Elliott of Elliott Stone says the acquisition represents a new and exciting chapter for the small family-owned business.
"Elliott Stone has a long and proud heritage that we take great pride in, so as part of this transition we wanted to find someone who shared our same principles and values," said Elliott.
"Polycor has an unmatched reputation in the industry and I'm confident our synergies will contribute to the overall success of the business."
Founded in 1957, Elliott Stone Company has a long history as one of the most forward-thinking companies in the stone industry.
In fact, the company is unique among limestone quarriers as the bulk of their material comes from an underground quarry. This allows for continuous operation even in inclement or winter weather, allowing the company to meet customer demand for quality limestone on schedule all year.
"This is truly an exciting time for Polycor as our business continues to grow."

In the interest of remaining on the cutting edge, Polycor Inc. strives to be the chief innovator in an otherwise conformist industry.
"Our main desire at Polycor Inc. is to surprise. Through the inventiveness and modernism of our products, we hope to make the world fall back in love with natural stone," says Patrick Perus, President of Polycor Inc.
From New York to Washington by way of Abu Dhabi, Polycor Inc. has contributed to architectural projects, heritage sites, and large buildings all over the world. At the other end of the spectrum, Polycor Inc.'s creative ideas and constant development of new products and innovative solutions make it possible to push the limits of natural stone for smaller scale projects, both residential and commercial.
Polycor Inc. is mindful of its role in the sustainable development (economic, social, and environmental) of the communities of its employees. Polycor Inc. is aware of its local and global impact, and has kept the rich legacy of North American quarries alive.
Founded in 1987 in Quebec City, Canada, Polycor Inc. has become the largest fully-integrated manufacturer and distributor of natural stone in North America.
Its growth through acquisitions, including Rock of Ages and Swenson in September 2016 and Indiana Limestone Company in October 2018, demonstrates its position as a leader. The company also stands out because of its focus on employing people in the community.
Today, Polycor Inc. employs nearly 1,200 people, and owns more than 50 quarries and 18 manufacturing plants across North America and Europe.
