In 1978 when the first Unit at Jeffrey Energy Center located near St. Marys , Kansas started burning Powder River Basin Coal, Don Hock started marketing Class C Fly Ash out of that plant under the name of Kansas Ash. In 1992, Flinthills Fly Ash began marketing out of the Jeffrey plant under the leadership of Bill and Brady Pryor and worked side by side with Kansas Ash to grow the Class C Fly Ash market. In 1996, the two companies merged into one and marketed their products under the name of Fly Ash Management, L.L.C. During the course of the 25 years these companies were marketing Fly Ash, a relationship developed with Ash Grove Cement and in 2004 a joint venture was formed between Ash Grove Cement and Fly Ash Management to market industrial by-products into the construction industry. Ash Grove Resources, L.L.C. which is based out of Topeka, Kansas, was specifically formed to market cement kiln dust (CKD) as Ash Grove Durabase® and Class C Fly Ash. The Ash Grove Durabase® which we market is produced at Ash Grove Cement plants in the Midwest and Texas Divisions. These two products were formerly land-filled and finding a productive use for it has contributed to a sustainable development drive in our companies.

Our Ash Grove Durabase® and Class C Fly Ash are a growing section in the construction industry now. Sales of Ash Grove Durabase® have grown to more than 60% of production of the product at the Ash Grove Cement plants located in Midwest and Texas Divisions. Why? Ash Grove Durabase® is currently viewed by builders as a valuable investment. It is an effective product in stabilizing soils. Using CKD lengthens the service life of our nation's roads and parking lots.

Ash Grove Durabase® is brought to market today with much success. It is now available in three states in our region. Our Ash Grove Durabase® producing plants are in Chanute, Kansas; Midlothian, Texas; and Foreman, Arkansas. With three plants providing this product, much more is available for the construction industry to utilize for soil stabilization projects.

Ash Grove Resources, L.L.C. also markets Class C Fly Ash. This is used as a soil stabilization product in the same applications as our Ash Grove Durabase®. It is also a material that can be used in concrete production. This versatile material has seen an acceptance in the construction industry over the course of the last ten years. Today, that growth potential continues to rise.
