We believe in giving our associates the tools and support to perform and lead at their best.
In 2018 Luck Companies was recognized as a Korn Ferry Employee Engagement Award Winner. The global organization consulting firm conducts an annual study of more than three million respondents from more than 500 companies in more than 60 countries.
“This—to me—is one of the most important moments and proudest achievements of our company. When you’re a part of a company that’s about people and those people care about what they are doing and they score at a world class level, it just doesn’t get any better than that.”
The I-64 Widening Project is a multi-year endeavor that will improve mobility along a heavily trafficked part of the interstate between Richmond, VA and Newport News, VA.
Luck Stone is proud to have been selected to participate in all three segments of the project, which will make day-to-day travel easier and enable safer evacuation from the Hampton Roads area in the event of a natural disaster.
“The Port of Virginia is vital to the economic success of not only Virginia but also the United States. In order for the Port to remain viable, our entire transportation infrastructure needs to support it. Our company’s critical role in the I-64 expansion project and longstanding partnerships with Allan Myers, Shirley Contracting, and the Port of Virginia have been key in ensuring that our work is enabling the growth, safety, and economic prosperity this highly-traveled roadway generates.”
At Luck Companies, we integrate environmental, economic and social responsibility best practices into our business strategies to ensure the long-term health of our company, our associates, our communities and our environment.
In 2012, the Atlantic sturgeon was officially placed on the federal endangered species list.
Around that same time, the James River Association approached Luck Companies about supporting the construction of two sturgeon reefs in the James River.
Luck Stone provided a mix of irregular size rocks to mimic the clean rocky surface of their natural habitat. The hope was that it would become a place for Atlantic sturgeon to lay their eggs and for young sturgeon to hide out and evade predators.
And in 2018, the number of juvenile sturgeon in the James jumped dramatically; Virginia Commonwealth University researchers have recorded more than 300 juvenile sturgeon sightings, and it has become commonplace enough to see sturgeon “breach” in the James River.
“For our part, we will continue our efforts to protect the James River and the entire Chesapeake Bay watershed. We will stay in close touch with our partners at the JRA. As riverkeepers, they are, by definition, the ‘voice of the river.’ And we are proud listeners.”
Stone is incredibly important to the digital age.
All those high-speed signals transferring information across our economy have to pass through a data center, a collection of concrete buildings housing computer systems that power the internet. The largest concentration of data centers in the country happens to be in the Dulles corridor of Northern Virginia. According to Data Center Knowledge, the Northern Virginia region “shattered its own record of 115MW of wholesale data center leasing in 2018 with a reported 232MW of leases — about 2.5 times last year’s leasing volume of all other U.S. markets combined.”
For nearly 100 years, our aggregate products have served as the foundation for the bridges, roads and buildings that keep our economy moving. Even in the digital age, Luck Stone is continuing to play an important role in building that infrastructure by supporting customers in Northern Virginia’s Data Center Alley.
Luck Stone aggregate is a critical component in the construction and development of Data Center Alley, as it’s being used as a base material for site development, concrete construction, utility bedding and asphalt application.
“Our Customers are literally laying the groundwork for global exchange of information. We’re proud to support them—as we have for decades—with partnership, service and simplicity.”
An important aspect of Luck Stone’s growth strategy is our commitment to impacting economic growth through industrial real estate ventures.
Just as important as a good working relationship with town leadership is engaging with the local community members.
With a presence in Nottoway County, VA for 80 years at Luck Stone’s Burkeville Plant and a longstanding commitment to engaging with the community, Luck Stone looks forward to joining the Towne of Crewe and will be initiating site development in 2020.
"How we behave as a company, how we work every day to minimize the impact of our work on our neighbors, and how we give back to our communities. That trust is what leads to our future success."
