Excavators or loaders?
Which, if either, is better across the board for quarry applications?
It’s somewhat of a controversial topic in the quarrying world, with no shortage of opinions. But Turner Mining Group, a mine services contractor based in Indiana that operates from coast to coast, has a clear preference. And it has no fear of sharing why.

The A.R. Wilson Quarry, owned and operated by Graniterock, is nestled in the quiet, tree-covered hills of Aromas, California.
From Graniterock’s headquarters in Watsonville, California, located near Monterey Bay, the quarry is a 20-minute drive through strawberry fields. The 2,000-acre quarry sits squarely on the San Andreas Fault, aiding in the pre-fracturing of hard rock material.

That’s right. Blue collar and social media in the same headline. Crazy, isn’t it? Not exactly...
The world of building things has a massive people problem. Retirements are accelerating, and there’s no new generation of workers ready to take over. While every boardroom in the industry tirelessly talks about how to attract younger people, social media has the ability to help construction, mining, and equipment companies reach them by the millions. And not just reach them, but hire them too. There are 20-somethings working in these industries from coast to coast thanks to online marketing using social media.

Technology is certainly a buzzword in the construction industry these days. Just about every executive likes to tout how their company is investing in the latest in drone, GPS and software technology. Buying technology is one thing, but implementing and creating a culture surrounding technology is a whole different story.
Despite the excitement, most construction projects are still run by paper and pencil. There are, however, a few exceptions to the old school mentality who are charting a path toward the future of building due to a thorough embrace of technology. One company in particular is RAWSO Constructors of Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Mining, an industry dominated by longstanding and aging titans, has largely avoided disruption by keeping quiet and honing their tried-and-true methods. That is, until now.
Mining is now in the crosshairs of a new upstart out of Indiana: Turner Mining Group. The company and its founder, Keaton Turner, aim to move the earth differently than the current market-dominating players – not through genius technology, but through a new approach to hiring, breaking through the stale industry culture and offering all mine services under one roof stretching nationwide.
