TOWN OF LISBON — Lannon Stone
Incorporated has purchased from Halquist Stone Company the
approximately 300-acre Lisbon limestone quarry at the intersection
of Highway K (Lisbon Road) and Highway F on the Lisbon-Sussex
Although it was Halquist’s largest local quarry, it represented only
about 10 percent of the company’s overall operations, said Vice
President Tom Halquist.
Halquist emphasized the family-owned company will continue to offer
a variety of landscape stones, pavers, cut stones, granite and
marble and will continue to own and operate the company office and
store located near the quarry on Lisbon Road.
Representatives of the stone companies declined to reveal the price
of the acquisition.
Hans Dawson, president of Lannon Stone, said the acquisition
provides his company with an opportunity to continue expanding its
resources to better serve large construction projects.
Dawson said the approximately 20 former Halquist employees affected
by the transaction will be offered an opportunity to work for Lannon
In 2013, Lannon Stone purchased the 400-acre Vulcan Quarry in
Sussex, immediately east of the Lisbon quarry.
Lannon Stone produces about 4 to 6 million tons of limestone and
gravel annually, most of it in the Lisbon, Lannon and Sussex
communities, Dawson said.
