Delaware Quarries, Inc. has been in business for 70 years from our original location on the banks of the historic Delaware River where we’ve quarried and sold the finest quality stone for building and landscaping purposes. Our first quarry has been in operation since 1758. From it and our added numerous locations, we provide an unsurpassed range of colors, textures, and varieties of premium grade guillotine cut stone and uncut natural fieldstone.
Joseph Busik founded Delaware Quarries, Inc. in February 1946. He had just returned home from flying B17s over Europe in World War II. The lt. colonel purchased America’s oldest operating quarry which had been operating since 1758 on the banks of the Delaware River, in Bucks County, Pa. In the beginning, Joe would cut stone early in the day, and then at night would put on his salesman hat and go out to sell the stone veneer that he had just produced. Princeton University was one of Joe’s first customers.
The Building Stone Institute (BSI), the trade assocation of the Decorative Stone Industry, has presented Delaware Quarries with many awards, and has recognized us as America’s largest stone supplier.
Today, Delaware Quarries, Inc. is owned by J. Kevan Busik, the son of Joe Busik. At the age of 11, Kevan had already begun helping his father in the quarry. In 1972 he became a full time member of the DQ team.
Kevan was elected president of the Building Stone Institute at their 2000 annual convention. A few years later, at the 84th annual BSI convention, Kevan was named “Man of the Year”. BSI members from around the world honored him for his principles, honor and integrity. Kevan and Joe are the only father and son past presidents that were both elected Man of the Year.
