Learn more about us at BoDean Company
BoDean Company is the solution to your construction materials and aggregate needs. Aggregate is a processed rock that is necessary to support and protect a variety of construction projects ranging from storm drainage systems to road construction.
With a history dating back to 1910, Belinda and Dean Soiland took over operations at the Mark West Quarry in 1989. With slow and steady growth and through the dedication of our experienced employees, we have grown our company from its humble beginnings that once operated out of a trailer office with a low budget, to a thriving family business that is able to provide a variety of goods and services to both long-standing clients and new ones alike.
Incorporated in 1988, we continue to be the primary supplier of quality crushed rock and asphaltic concrete to the greater Santa Rosa area and northern Napa County.
Our success lies in two key ingredients: our knowledgeable and dedicated employees, and the quality of our products.
History of BoDean Company
BoDean Company operates three locations in Sonoma County: Mark West Quarry, BoDean Forestville Quarry, BoDean Asphalt Plant.
In 1997, just a short eight years after taking over operations of the Mark West Quarry, the BoDean Forestville Quarry, also known as the Blue Rock Quarry, was acquired.
In 2001, BoDean Company ventured into the asphalt production business by acquiring an already existing asphalt plant located in Santa Rosa.
In 2006, we constructed and installed a wash plant and water recycling system at the Mark West Quarry. This wash plant provides us with the ability to manufacture washed products, including sand. These products are washed of clay and dirt and therefore are suitable as ingredients not only for asphalt production, but concrete as well. Our closed-loop washing system became the first of its kind in North America and aided our company in our constant efforts towards a reliance on sustainable practices.
The BoDean Difference
Like many of our customers, sustainability is a priority for us here at BoDean Company. One of our greatest achievements in our goals towards sustainable practices is the fact that our Mark West Quarry became the first quarry in the world to fully operate under its own photo-voltaic (solar) power in 2011. This photovoltaic system is expected to generate more than 1,120,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy each year, and the electricity produced by the solar panels will offset enough energy to power 160 typical American homes for a full year.
In keeping with our goals towards sustainability, we went through the great expense to design the Blue Rock Quarry around the same model as our Mark West Quarry. By doing so, the quarry in Forestville runs with environmental and cost-efficiency in mind.
All quarries are required to have a reclamation plan that details how the mined land will be reclaimed. At BoDean Company, reclamation is done at the same time as mining to create a more ideal situation. During the mining process, we move topsoil from an area that is to be mined to one that has already been mined in an effort to preserve and reuse the resources given to us. We also work to move and replant trees from prospective mining areas to other areas in an effort to avoid cutting them down. This allows us to be better stewards of the land.
Sustainability is a mark of business here at BoDean Company, along with our commitment to safety and quality. With over twenty different products and a variety of services, we are able to provide our customers with a range of products that can be used for a variety of DIY or home projects to major construction projects and everywhere in between.
We are a family here at BoDean Company and that is proven in the daily work of our dedicated employees. We know that construction projects require detailed materials and that acquiring those high-quality materials in cost effective way can sometimes be a challenge. Our sales team is extremely knowledgeable about products and specifications and can help steer you in the right direction.
We are proud of our humble beginnings but we look forward to the opportunities that a brighter future holds as we work to continue supplying our customers with quality materials in the safest and most responsible ways possible. We take pride in serving our customers and producing quality materials and we look forward to hearing from you.
