A little Callanan History…
One of the most experienced paving materials suppliers in the country, Callanan Industries was founded by Peter Callanan in 1883 in South Bethlehem, New York, as an aggregate mining company. A forward thinking farmer and entrepreneur, Callanan pioneered the concept of a state highway system, and in 1895 won the first road building contract in New York State.
Over a century later, Callanan Industries continues to be a major supplier of construction materials and services to the New York State Department of Transportation as well as a long list of other customers, both large and small.
Callanan Industries was purchased by Oldcastle, Inc. in 1985, a wholly owned subsidiary of the multinational Dublin, Ireland based CRH-PLC. In 2018, the Oldcastle name was rebranded as CRH Americas Materials and all of its subsidiaries adopted the tagline “A CRH Company.”
