Lindsey Aggregates, Inc.

Operation Oswego County, Inc.

Lindsey Aggregates, Inc. expanded their aggregate mining operation located in the Town of Palermo. The company, headquartered in the Town of Scriba, added a state-of-the-art aggregate washing facility and associated units to efficiently crush and classify aggregate products. The Palermo site is one of a few approved by the NYS DOT for high-friction material.Their mining process left valuable waste materials that the company was trying to find a way to re-purpose, as well as expand their business model through the additional product offerings. Their existing equipment required individual setup for each product they were processing and could only process up to 2,000 tons daily.The 25-ft tall, highly computerized wash plant is capable of making 7 products in one pass. The wash process removes sediment from the crushed stone which is then processed into sand for concrete and masonry. The new equipment can process up to 4,000 tons of material daily.The $4.3 million expansion created more than 4 jobs and retained 17. Assistance was provided by the County of Oswego IDA, USDA, Key Bank and ESDC/CNYREDC.The company is a woman-owned business (51%) and a veteran-owned business (49%).
