HOUSTON (MARCH 5,2014) – Keeping pace with the growth and expansion of the Houston metropolitan area, locally-based Cherry Companies estimates it will produce 500,000 tons of stabilized material at its seventh and newly opened stabilized materials plant. Adding this new facility, Cherry now has a combined production capacity of two million tons of materials at its seven plants throughout the Houston area.
The new plant, located at 5826 Riley Fuzzle in Spring, is serving customers located in north Houston. The sixth plant near Richmond and Rosenburg area was opened in late October of 2013, making the Riley Fuzzle plant the second facility Cherry has opened within the last six months.
“North Houston primarily has been an untapped market for the company,” says John Conyer, manager of Cherry’s Stabilized Materials Division. “There is significant economic and infrastructure expansion in the area and we intend to grow alongside this market.”
The stabilized material plants produce stabilized sand and recycled road based material. The newest facility is strategically located in close proximity to the expansion of the Grand Parkway and continued development of ExxonMobil’s new Houston-based campus. It is also prepared to service projects and companies in The Woodlands, Tomball and Porter areas, along with local municipalities.
“We’re adding experienced operators from within Cherry and other new managers recruited from the industry to benefit us in this exciting company expansion,” Conyer adds.
Cherry’s other stabilized material plants are located at 9929 Katy Hockley Rd, Katy; 6019 Crawford Rd., Houston; Beltway 8 and Tanner Rd., Houston; 4410 Dagg Road, Houston; 5325 County Road 58, Pearland; and 6400 Koeblen Rd., Richmond.
