This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Although it was founded on good fortune, nurtured by hard work and optimism, over time Hess Pumice Products grew into a dominant world player for industrial abrasives, made from their vast reserve of the highest quality pumice available on earth. They’re great at watching trends and stay ahead of the curve with new products and innovations, which is why this family-owned business is now in the fourth-generation.

Hess Pumice Products provides pure, refined and precision-grade pumice with over 30 standard blends and 300 plus custom blends. They’ve made it a point to diversify from providing ground glass for TV screens to include computer chips, circuit boards and other consumer electronics. They’re also on the leading edge of creating products that make concrete stronger and more durable and have found uses for their pumice in the oilfield services for cementing and grouting.

When they saw the building industry coming back, the Hess family decided to update their equipment so Hess Pumice is being used to make manufactured stones on buildings. They’re also producing a high-quality microfine grout used in stabilizing soils and to seal microfractures. A new company was formed to create these products and between the two, they have 200 employees on board.
