Being a leader in the local concrete and aggregate industry, we are continually making advancements and upgrades to our facility and equipment to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible.
Minimizing our carbon footprint is very important to us now and well into the future. Along with keeping our facility and equipment environmentally friendly, Canyon Rock was the first local aggregate producer to start recycling concrete and asphalt in 1975, and we continue to do so today. We are dedicated to producing quality products and we believe in building lasting relationships with our community and our customers.
Canyon Rock has been a leader in the industry in supplying quality aggregate and concrete since the 1970s. The Trappe family, originally from Freestone, CA owned a dairy ranch and would purchase materials from Canyon Rock for their roads. In 1972, Canyon Rock was for sale and purchased by Adolph Trappe, and has been family owned and operated ever since. Adolph’s son, Wendel, and his wife Gwen have kept Canyon Rock as a family-operated business over the years and their three children are now a vital part of the company as well.
Canyon Rock has been built by three generations, with hopes to soon have its fourth generation learning the business. Aggregate is a vital part of structures that support everyday life and it is important to have local sources. Canyon Rock’s goal is to produce aggregate and concrete products in the most efficient, sustainable way possible into the next generation while adapting to a changing climate and evolving demand, all while making the best use of people and technology to make products in which we and our community are all proud.
Canyon Rock and the Trappe family are very involved with the community. Living in the community where the business operates helps us appreciate and recognize the impact we can have by being involved. As long as our business has been in operation, we have been donating rock, concrete, equipment, and anything else we have available to us in order to benefit our community. In addition to tangible donations, the Trappe family also donates an unmeasurable amount of time to numerous non-profit organizations. We believe in giving back to our community and our customers.
