Dominican College and its Board of Trustees are pleased to announce that Tilcon New York Inc. will be celebrated for outstanding professional leadership, philanthropic community involvement, and high ethical standards at a reception in the company’s honor on April 21. The reception will be held at the spectacular venue 360° in Manhattan.
For more than 100 years, Tilcon has been helping build a greater New York. The company is
one of the largest providers of construction materials in the New York Metropolitan Area serving New York City, the lower Hudson Valley, Long Island, central and northern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. A division of Oldcastle Materials, Inc., one of the largest building materials suppliers, each year Tilcon provides millions of tons of crushed stone, asphalt, sand, and recycled materials.
Tilcon operates quarries, asphalt plants, building materials recycling centers, and barge transport terminals. The Construction Division provides a range of services such as milling and highway paving. The company maintains multiple locations across the region and because they operate their own quarries, they are able to stockpile a wide-range of crushed stone and related building products that can meet the industry’s needs year-round.
For more than a century, Tilcon and the predecessor companies have supplied materials for and have worked on many of the iconic and important building and construction projects in the region. For example, Tilcon stone can be found in the new Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan, beneath New York City streets in the Second Ave Subway, in the New Yankee Stadium, and on Governors Island. Tilcon worked on paving the runways at Newark Liberty, and Teterboro airports, as well as the traffic lanes of the Lincoln Tunnel. Dominican College is one local institution where Tilcon materials have been used – as well as the NY State Thruway, the Tappan Zee Bridge, and the streets, roads and highways of Rockland County.
Tilcon is headquartered in West Nyack and has operations in both New York and New Jersey including nine quarries, eleven asphalt plants, seven materials recycling facilities and three marine shipping terminals including Haverstraw. They are an economic driver for the region, employing some 900 workers including many in Rockland County. Tilcon actively encourages employees to take part in a wide range of community activities, particularly coaching, scouting, and other programs for young people. As a company, Tilcon has traditionally had a strong commitment to supporting community resources, including the college.
Tilcon has achieved national recognition for excellence in the areas of quarry beautification projects, community relations, workplace safety, environmental compliance, asphalt operations, and paving quality. They have also received hundreds of industry awards from the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association, the New Jersey Concrete & Aggregate Association, the National Asphalt Pavement Association, American Road and Transportation Builders Association, and the Mining Safety Health Administration.
Dominican College is honored to salute a local company whose leadership and compassionate service has helped to build resources for people in our community, in our region, and in our world.
