History of the Dalrymple Companies

Dalrymple Companies - Since 1902The Dalrymple Companies are involved in two related lines of business: heavy/highway construction, and construction materials, which includes crushed stone aggregates and the manufactured products of hot mix asphalt. The companies are currently being managed by the fourth generation of the Dalrymple family. The original business, a gravel supply operation, started in Elmira, NY, in 1902. In those days gravel was shoveled by hand and delivered to customers by horse-drawn wagon.

In 1936, Dalrymple Gravel & Contracting, the original company, was incorporated and a concrete plant was erected to serve the Elmira area. The company was one of the first in New York State to provide customers with ready-mix concrete delivered to the job site by truck.

Following World War II and through the 1950's, the construction business dramatically expanded and the company construction division grew into a multi-state operation that offered a wide variety of civil construction services. Today Chemung Contracting Corp., the construction company in the group, completes major highway, bridge, airport and dam projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

The construction materials companies includes the following wholly owned subsidiaries: Dalrymple Gravel & Contracting Co. Inc., which serves the Elmira, NY, area; Seneca Stone Corp., which serves the Seneca Falls area in Upstate New York; and Cedar Mountain Stone which serves the Culpeper and Central Virginia market. These companies mine, crush and sell state-approved aggregates. They also manufacture hot mix asphalt at each stone source location and at numerous distribution points associated with each main plant.
