Cherry Companies, a recycling and demolition company based in Houston, has announced the opening of its newest stabilized materials plant. The stabilized material plant will produce stabilized sand (used for backfill and bedding) and recycled road-base material.

The new facility is located in Spring, Texas, north of Houston, and is the seventh such plant operated by the company. It is expected to produce around 500,000 tons of stabilized material per year. With the newest plant, Cherry says it has a combined production capacity of around 2 million tons of material throughout the Houston area.

“North Houston primarily has been an untapped market for the company,” says John Conyer, manager of Cherry’s Stabilized Materials Division. “There is significant economic and infrastructure expansion in the area and we intend to grow alongside this market.”

He continues, “We’re adding experienced operators from within Cherry and other new managers recruited from the industry to benefit us in this exciting company expansion.”
