About The Estes Co.
Estes is a national name across multiple industries.
While the Clifford W. Estes Company may not be the largest or most recognizable “Estes Company” around, it is the oldest. And we plan to outlive all others. We provide the highest quality products at great value in an industry as old as dirt.
We sell sand and gravel. It’s not glamorous. Yet Estes products power solutions across a wide range of applications. We pride ourselves in being the best possible partners to several industries.
Through that, we know our products solve problems for everyday consumers.
Our values shine through in all that we do. It’s about more than just good business. As a company, we try to make the world a better place. After all, we serve one of humanity’s oldest industries. We like to think our partnerships play a role laying the bedrock of society.
From humble beginnings to national manufacturing leaders. Ours is a story six generations in the making. Over the course of a century and a half, we’ve proven our commitment to doing the right thing. Moving forward, we see our future shaping up much like our past.
It’s good to be the best. Consumers love our products and ask for them by name. Choose Estes and your customers will love you too.
Few manufacturers can match our pricing. Estes gives you wider margins and a competitive edge you can only find from a wholesale leader.
We are the Leaders in Color. We offer a near limitless selection of colors and grades. If you need color-matching experts, we’re also the obvious choice.
Our values can be felt in everything we do. A six generation legacy is on the line, after all. The Estes Company treats you like family.
Estes is all the way in. We’ve been manufacturing the highest quality aggregates for over 150 years. We take pride in being multi-industry pioneers.
No one responds to market trends like Estes. We never leave our contractors or distributors behind. Count on us to always push ahead.
