Boxley has partnered with Feed America across our operating area in Virginia. Feeding Southwest Virginia and Blue Ridge Area Food Bank serve over 217 thousand individuals each month across 51 counties and 17 cities. In these areas, two in every 20 adults, and two in 15 children, suffer from food insecurity.

Construction is nearing completion at the Beaver Creek Dam Reservoir where Boxley has supplied aggregate and ready-mix for Martinsville city’s $2 million repair project. The regularly inspected 70-year-old facility is looking at extending life by another 50 years with the repairs that took place over the past year.

Boxley’s newest asphalt plant, Zion Crossroads, provides an on-site laboratory to assure our customers have the reliable, quality mixes they require to get their job done right. The plant and lab are gearing up to begin production on our high-quality mixes as early as April 5th, 2021.

$10,000 gift will support the promotion and delivery of museum's virtual education programming

 

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (February 24, 2021) – The Virginia Museum of Natural History (VMNH) and Boxley Materials Company (Boxley) have announced a partnership in support of the museum's virtual education offerings throughout 2021 and 2022.

 

Boxley is full steam ahead, as the April 2021 opening of the new Zion Crossroads Asphalt plant remains on track. New to the family, Superintendent Dewayne Blizzard is overseeing the process of what will go down as the first plant he has put up.

Boxley and other neighbors were there to assist when 25 families became stranded due to a strong and persistent storm in June 2020. In the beginning, Charles Craddock, Vice President of Boxley Asphalt, and his crew forged a temporary logging bridge with supplies donated from Nichols Logging. Providing residents of ‘The Highlands’ time to look for a more permanent solution to install before the inevitable winter season began.

Boxley’s Wytheville ready-mix location won the bid to supply 4,000 yards of concrete to reconstruct the current 60-year-old bridge on I-81 crossing Reed Creek in Wythe County.

Since 1924 Boxley has partnered with and donated to United Way, which works to strengthen education, financial stability, and health in our communities. Boxley holds an annual giving campaign to encourage our employees to make any donation they can and then matches all donations received. With a total of $117,416 in 2021 pledges, Boxley ounce again achieved its goal of increasing donations year over year.

There is a new asphalt plant coming to Zion Crossroads in April 2021! Boxley’s newest site will be conveniently located minutes from I-64 and Rt. 15. Our newest location will provide VDOT-approved mix designs and have a laboratory on-site. The Zion Crossroads plant will support Freight on Board (F.O.B) asphalt pavement sales along with commercial and industrial design services.
