We take pride in our people-focused culture
The National Lime and Stone Company is a family centered business—and we consider every one of our employees a valued member.
Our employees are some of the most knowledgeable and innovative in the industry, and they know that their contributions to the National team will be appreciated and acknowledged. We encourage an open exchange of ideas and stress teamwork over titles.
A company culture built on mutual respect makes it easier for us to work together and to relax together. Believe it or not, many of us bring our families back to National outside of work hours to enjoy a barbecue or a swim at Limestone Lake, an old quarry we turned into a private recreational facility exclusively for the benefit of our employees. This is just one example of the family-friendly environment that we value at National Lime and Stone. We believe that a healthy life outside of work enables us to focus when we are at work, allowing us to deliver top-quality services to our customers.
Because we are such a close-knit team, it’s also important to work in a safe environment with competitive pay and benefits, where health and wellness is a top priority. National provides a health plan that covers physicals and wellness activities as well as medically necessary procedures, so that every employee can live a healthy and active life. Other benefits include life insurance coverage and the opportunity to save for retirement through a 401(k) plan.
The National Lime and Stone team bases everything we do on mutual respect and responsibility, and that extends to how we care for the people in our communities. We take pride in being a company that treats every customer with professionalism, honesty, and integrity to create the highest level of trust between all parties.
We are proud of our heritage and have developed one of our original quarries into a private recreational park for the exclusive use of our employees and their families to promote the Company’s philosophy of family and fellowship. National people not only work together, they play together using Limestone Lake for swimming, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. Limestone Lake is located in the southeastern section of Hancock County.
We pride ourselves in having a team of people who are dedicated to and rewarded for the success of our Company. We take an interest in each person as an individual and believe in providing opportunities for our employees to learn and grow and have a strong philosophy of promoting from within our own team. Training programs are provided.

The nature of our business – quarrying rock from the earth – makes being a good community neighbor challenging at times. The people at National understand the need to work extra hard to meet and exceed obligations to the communities in which they work and live. From blasting to processing, from land reclamation to community involvement, National employees bring the very best they have to work each day and work hard to be the very best in the industry.
