William E. Dailey, Inc.
William E. Dailey, founded in 1927, was originally in the business of bidding on the construction of schools, post offices, and other buildings. By 1930, the company expanded into mining and processing sand and gravel. 20 years later, the company incorporated and expanded into the blacktop and general contracting business by building and paving roads using the blacktop and concrete it produced. William E. Dailey joined the Peckham Family of Companies in 2004.
In the late 1990s, the former William E. Dailey Inc. (WED) were looking to expand their aggregate reserves and opened the Hoosick, NY facility as a new quarry. This new facility serviced hot mix asphalt operations in Shaftsbury, VT as well as construction in Bennington, VT that was taking place at the time. In 2000, PII was hired to crush stone for WED at the newly established Hoosick quarry. PII purchased WED in 2004. Most of the stationary plant, with the exception of the primary crusher, was removed in order to further develop the quarry and maximize reserves in 2016.
Hoosick is a dolomite quarry. Dolomite is a rock formation of calcium magnesium carbonate with a chemical composition of CaMg(CO3)2. It is crushed and sized for use as a road base material, an aggregate in concrete and asphalt, railroad ballast, rip-rap, or fill.
William E. Dailey Inc. operations consist of an aggregate crushing, screening, and washing plant, and a hot mix asphalt plant. Adjacent to the precast plant, WED has been a major provider of construction materials to the Shaftsbury, VT region as well as many towns and counties in NY, VT, and northwest MA since the 1950s. Our Hoosick, NY quarry services hot mix asphalt operations at our Shaftsbury plant.
