History

Kirby Stone Company, LLC was established in 1982 by Weldon Kirby in Lometa, Texas.  Starting with a small crew on a small quarry, Mr. Kirby began selling quality sandstone to local customers.  As the business succeeded, he expanded his operations to include different colors, shapes and sizes of stone.  He began introducing his sandstone products into the major markets in Texas and began quarrying out of a larger tract of land, providing more colors and selection of products.  Shortly after starting the business, Mr. Kirby hired William Kelley as a quarry manager to help meet the new demand and new production concepts.  Mr. Kelley remains with Kirby Stone today and is an integral part of the company.

In 2003, Mr. Kirby decided to retire and sold the business to the Cox family with the intention of keeping the business family owned and operated.  The Cox family, which includes Bo, Doug and Blake, kept the Kirby name and strive to continue to offer the great quality and service established by Mr. Kirby.  The Cox’s have continued to expand the operations by adding new equipment and production methods which have led to new color and product selections of distinctive stone. 

In 2004, Kirby Stone Company acquired a limestone quarry located in Salado, Texas, further adding to the product line and selections available to our customers.  The addition of the limestone quarry provides Kirby Stone the opportunity to reach out to a larger target market by offering a wide array of stone types, styles and colors.

Kirby Stone Company offers chopped, sawn, thin veneer, flagstone and many other specialty items from both quarries.  Please visit our Limestone and Sandstone pages for more information regarding our products.
