Washington Rock Quarries is located just outside of Puyallup, Washington, and 40 miles southeast of Tacoma.
Established in 1990, our company has become one of the leading suppliers of quality construction aggregate products in the state of Washington. Prior to starting Washington Rock Quarries, founder Harry Hart was involved in heavy construction and portable crushing for twenty years. Click on the video link below to learn more.
Through a business acquaintance, Harry learned about a rock quarry for sale in the historic lumber town of Kapowsin, Washington. After researching the local industry, Harry observed that quarries in the Tacoma area were few and had limited resources. Washington Rock had the opportunity to supply quality quarry rock to customers at a fair price and from a more convenient location.

Eight years after opening Kapowsin Quarry for business, Washington Rock acquired King Creek Pit, a sand and gravel pit located three miles from the quarry. Together the two pits provide over one million tons of material annually to locations throughout the state and nationwide. Both King Creek Pit and Kapowsin Quarry are well known for their outstanding quality of crushed rock, sand, and other construction aggregates, which are approved for use by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), the US Army Corp of Engineers, and the Federal Highways Division.
Washington Rock’s goal is to keep our customers happy by providing quality materials at an affordable price. We have been able to accomplish this by building two state-of-the-art facilities that produce a large variety of products. Our quality control program ensures that our products are tested daily and meet each customer’s specifications.

- King Creek Drying Plant
Eight years after Washington Rock was founded, King Creek Pit was opened for business. King Creek produces a wide array of washed sand and washed rock products, such as pea gravel and concrete aggregates. Our high-capacity ALMIX aggregate drying and bagging plant allows us to dry sand, enhanced friction surface material, pea gravel, and other products. Dried products are deposited into Super Sacks, secured on pallets, and delivered to job sites. We also work with local trucking companies to deliver loads of topsoil, sand, crushed stone, and other products to residential and commercial customers.
Many jobs require aggregate material to be approved by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). You can find WSDOT approval reports for both Kapowsin Quarry and King Creek Pit below.
