WE ARE UNITED

We are best known as the company with the red, white and blue trucks, serving our communities with the production of sand and rock products, ready-mixed concrete, hot mixed asphalt and construction services, including grading and paving of highways, streets, parking lots and driveways.

In 1989, our management committed to a mission statement, “To be the premier construction and materials supply company in Western Colorado.”  Mission accomplished, as we are a prominent component in one of America’s largest and most successful construction and material supply organizations.”  We continue to operate with a commitment to excellence, using a five-point Code of Conduct as a guide.  The five points in that code are a commitment to safety, environmental stewardship, quality products and workmanship, honesty and integrity in all aspects of the business, and performance of work in a cost-effective manner.  The safety, environmental and quality awards we have received over the years are a testament to the success and value of that commitment.

THE PREFERRED SOURCE

Telluride Gravel originated in Telluride, Colorado in 1972 and was later inherited by Pete Ballode in 1989. The company quickly grew from a small supplier and limited construction operation into a full service material supply and construction services under Pete’s management. Now we offer a complete line of services throughout the western slope of Colorado including aggregate and ready-mix production, site work, mass excavation, utility installation, building material supply, snow removal and trucking.
