Albert Haydon bought a share of Sam Nally Shop which was an equipment repair, metal fabrication and supply shop for several quarries and construction companies owned and operated by Sam Nally.
Albert became a partner in 2 quarries owned by Mr. Nally.
Due to stricter regulations concerning storage of explosives passed down from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, an explosive company asked Albert to design and build a storage magazine that they could provide to their customers throughout the eastern United States. Soon, due to the quality of the magazine, orders started coming in from coal mining operations and from other suppliers of explosives. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the U.S. military became the dominant customer for the magazines and the name was changed to Armag Corporation which was derived from merging the words “armor” and “magazine”.
Albert bought more interest in the quarries and changed the name of the company to Nally & Haydon. In subsequent years, Albert bought all of the Sam Nally stock to become sole owner of Nally & Haydon.
Nally & Haydon purchased an asphalt plant in Springfield and shortly thereafter purchased an asphalt plant in Greensburg along with a quarry & asphalt business in Lebanon.
Since that time, quarries have been acquired in Greensburg, Campbellsville, and Springfield. Quarries owned in Pineville, Cumberland,
Harlan, along with a block plant in Harlan were sold to Rinker Materials in 2006.
Albert Haydon passed away in 2008 and his sons and grandsons continue to work in the business.
A quarry in Bardstown owned by Cemex was purchased and is now operated as Haydon Materials.
Haydon acquired a quarry owned by Cemex on the Ohio River in Meade County, KY that supplies Mill Feed to Cemex’s Kosmosdale cement plant The Battletown quarry provides crushed limestone stone to the local area, and extends its reach by moving stone via the river into various markets.
Haydon Materials takes Safety very seriously.
Training is essential for a safe workplace. All of the quarry locations are compliant with all MSHA (Mine Safety & Health Administration) requirements and training. All asphalt plant locations and Paving Crews are compliant with all OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) requirements and training. We also comply with all other regulatory agencies including The United States Coast Guard. The Company dedicates in excess of 20 hours per year per employee for this dedicated training. Weekly and shift start-up safety meetings are held to keep safety as a focus for all employees. Employees follow a Safety Manual covering a variety of topics from Accident Procedures, Bloodborne Pathogens, Fall Protection, Hearing Conservation Program, Proper Equipment Lockout and Tagout Procedures, Proper use of Personal Protective Equipment, and Vehicle Safety procedures to name some of the categories covered.
Safety is more than policy – it is a culture – and Haydon Materials is working toward a Safety Culture where each and every employee is aware of their surroundings for both themselves and their fellow workers. Senior Management supports this culture completely which makes it possible and enables it to happen.
