History Established in 1942 When the State Coal Company began operations in the late 1920’s, the primary focus was coal sales. During the height of the Great Depression, they helped keep the small community of Armourdale, Kansas warm. Marvin Sturgis purchased the property at 7th and Kansas Avenue in the early 1940’s and sold coal, sand, gravel and related materials. The current owners, Marc Lonesk and Ed Walsh, assumed the company in 1976 and began expanding operations to include custom stone fabrication, specialty media for filters, sandblasting and also landscaping supplies. With the acquisition of the Southern Pacific Railroad building just east of the original property in 2000, Sturgis Materials now encompasses over 10 acres of stone yard, warehouse, office and fabrication facilities to better service our customers.
