About Kemp Quarries

Kemp Quarries is a leading producer of construction aggregates, primarily crushed stone, sand and gravel. These materials are most often produced from natural deposits of limestone and river sand. Our mining process typically begins with drilling and blasting the rock into smaller pieces. The material goes through various stages of crushing and screening to produce the sizes and specifications desired by our customers.


Our aggregates are used in different ways within the construction industry. As an associate member of the Oklahoma and Arkansas AGC chapters, we work closely with member contractors in providing materials to meet the most stringent needs and state certifications.
As a base material underneath highways, walkways, airport runways, parking lots and railroads. To help aid in water filtration, purification and erosion control including Type I and Type II Rip Rap. Used as a raw material in combination with other resources to construct many of the items that we rely on daily. Houses and apartments; Roads, bridges and parking lots; Schools and hospitals; Commercial buildings and retail space; Sewer systems; and Airports and runways.

Construction aggregates have formed the underpinnings for many of our cities, towns and transportation networks. Thousands of years ago, civilizations built entire cities with stone, sand and gravel, and many of these ancient structures still exist today. Aggregates are durable, attractive, and can be used in many different applications. On average, every American uses approximately eight tons of aggregates each year. Although our principal product is construction aggregates, Kemp Quarries offers a variety of other state-approved products and services.
