Deeply embedded in our nearly 100-year history is a culture of hard work, honesty and getting the job done right. Granite’s roots are traceable to California construction license No. 89, one of the first 100 licenses, 96 percent of which no longer exist. Our survival is not an accident. Hard work and unfaltering tenacity led us from quarrying granite rock, the stone that built the West, to paving the first roads into Yosemite and now to helping rebuild Ground Zero. Granite is—and will continue to be—part of a story much bigger than itself.
