Cherry Crushed Concrete opens new plant in Houston area

The Stabilized Material Division of Cherry Crushed Concrete has opened its fourth stabilized materials plant in the greater Houston area. Cherry’s newest stabilized material plant is located on a 56-acre site in Fort Bend County. At this location, the new state-of-the-art stabilized material plant is geographically situated to service Fort Bend, Harris and Brazoria counties.

The new stabilized material plant began operations in mid-February and processes crushed concrete and limestone. The resulting stabilized road base material is targeted to local heavy highway contractors, such as the Texas Department of Transportation and county municipality road work. The new plant is located adjacent to one of Cherry’s concrete crushing facilities, which processes concrete hauled from Cherry’s demolition sites. The resulting crushed concrete is then processed into the stabilized material at the new facility.

Cherry’s Fort Bend County crushing yard is equipped to crush up to approximately 1.3 million tons of concrete annually, bringing the combined annual crushing capacity of Cherry’s three area yards to approximately 2.5 million tons of concrete. Its two other yards are located in Houston, one at Loop 610 and Cullen and another in northwest Harris County.
