Valente Gravel, Inc. is one of the Capital Districts largest Material Handlers.
With over 40 dump trucks and numerous gravel pits throughout, we are able to
offer timely service and quality products to both residential and commercial
customers. In 1989, Roderick “Roddy” J. Valente began doing what he knew
best. After working his family’s business, Valente Gravel, he took a chance and
started his own company, R. J. Valente Gravel, Inc. With one dump truck, a bull
dozer, and dispatch located from his kitchen, he started rolling. As time went
on, Roddy began to acquire more trucks, equipment, property and employees. In
2006 our Quarry opened and began operating, with state of the art crushers and
screening equipment. R. J. Valente Gravel, Inc. is a family business owned and
operated by Roddy, with his children, daughter Daniella, son, Stephen and
nephew, Anthony. Together with a very dedicated staff they have brought the
company where they are today.
the years, we as a family and company are conscious of how lucky we are in and
in return strive to be honorable corporate citizens. Some of the charities we
have worked with include, The Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish Foundation and
The Center for Disability Services, among numerous youth and athletic teams.
Our philosophy has always been
no job is too small or too large. We have always been able to supply the
homeowner based on one load and able to service jobs over one million yards.
