Western Ohio Cut Stone
Acquires F. Hammond Stone

Tom Milligan, President of Western Ohio Cut Stone, is pleased to announce that on Wednesday, August 19, Western Ohio Cut Stone acquired the natural stone quarrying and processing operations of F. Hammond Stone, owned by Franklin D. and Marie Hammond of Bellevue, Ohio.

The acquired operations include two production locations, one in Flat Rock and one in Bloomville, both in Seneca County. "These operations will add personnel, products and customers that complement our existing operation," according to Milligan. "While we are in a very difficult economic cycle, we feel that the addition of F. Hammond will position our company well for the future," he added. The Hammonds plan to continue with their sawed stone operation, Northern Ohio Cut Stone.

Western Ohio Cut Stone, founded in 1995, is a producer of quarried natural landscape and building stone, beginning with a single quarry operation in Sidney. Since that time it has added an operation in Ludlow Falls and distributes the products of Natural Stone Veneers International throughout Ohio. Western Ohio Cut Stone's main offices are located at 1130 DingmanSlagle Road in Sidney, Ohio.
