New York aggregate operator moves downstream with Dakota Concrete

Dakota Concrete is the latest improvement designed to enhance the customer experience at Thalle Industries, which in April added to its Fishkill quarry a 350-ton/hour asphalt plant equipped to load pavement trailers and trucks within three minutes.

Thalle Industries of Briarcliff, N.Y. has launched a ready mixed concrete business from its Montrose quarry, expanding services to Lower Hudson Valley customers and strengthening its competitive position in a key market. The company operates a quarry and asphalt plant in Fishkill, N.Y., and a Virtual Quarry recycling center in Elmsford, N.Y. The investment in ready mixed production dovetails the opening of a second Virtual Quarry in Montrose, affording Dutchess County and Putnam County customers a new recycling option.

“Dakota Concrete fits with what we do, and the operation is a natural extension of our business,” says Thalle CEO Glenn Pacchiana. “The concrete plant has a team of young people who we want to help grow into valued members of the Thalle family. We are confident that this launch provides the opportunity to expand the concrete plant’s existing customer base, while providing new opportunities to employees. We are committed to working with our customers to ensure that we are providing the best quality products and services at competitive prices.”
