It is shown loaded with crushed stone. Material for the crushing plant comes from a nearby small mountain consisting of a conglomerate of small stones and gravel. The output from three crushes is from 250 to 300 yards a day. The company also operates a hot mix plant and utilizes a fleet of International Transit-Mix trucks for making deliveries in El Paso. Its motor truck fleet consists of 40 units. Besides the three new LF-170's, an LF-190 has recently been purchased. Karl W. Kautz is plant superintendent."
