Colorado Quarries, Inc. is located in the heart of Cañon City, just 10 miles east of America’s highest suspension bridge, the Royal Gorge Bridge. Being family owned and operated, we strive to provide an unmatched quality of customer satisfaction and community support.
For nearly a century, Colorado Quarries, Inc. has been producing a wide variety of materials. Early on, mining efforts were focused on mica and feldspar due to their role in steel production and its use in World War II. Following the war in the 1940s, our attention was redirected to decorative, hard aggregates.

A 1980 shift in the business proved beneficial to our customers. We began bagging landscape materials as well as shipping large supplies of precast aggregates across the country, and around the world. As a result, we were able to sell landscape material directly to our retail customers and provide the precast building industry with a variety of aggregates for projects big and small. During this time, we began shipping materials in bulk, bagged or crated, and by rail.
We continued on this path for two decades. However, after September 11, 2001, the precast building sector nearly came to a halt. It was during this time that Colorado Quarries, Inc. decided to focus on our retail customers. While still providing some precast materials, our main business became you. It is in this capacity that we still operate today.
It is with great pride and integrity that we at Colorado Quarries, Inc. provide you, our customer, the rock you love at the price you can afford. It’s an honor to rock your world.
