Mulzer Sponsors Perry Co. Habitat ReHab Home in Tell City

President Ken Mulzer, Jr. presents Crawford Co. Habitat with a $20,255.80 donation at our first annual charity outing in 2019.

Mulzer Family of Companies has been proudly supporting local Habitat for Humanity chapters for over 40 years, and in 2019, we created the First Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing to raise funds for one local chapter within our operating region.  100% of the funds raised are donated and our first chapter recipient was Crawford County Habitat for Humanity.

The Second Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing took place on-line last year, however we were still able to raise over $20,000!  Perry County Habitat was chosen as the recipient and they were able to quickly put those funds to use by purchasing an existing home near our Main Office in Tell City, Indiana that was to become the first ever ReHab project for Habitat in the county.

Josh Harris, Executive Director of Perry County Habitat, gave us the opportunity to bring a crew in for one of the first work days on the project: Demo Day!  22 employees, including interns and their supervising mentors, along with a host of others from all corners of Mulzer Family of Companies showed up on a sweltering hot morning to take down and salvage cabinets & trim, and remove carpeting and drywall.

Employees & interns gather for a group photo after Demo Day at the ReHab home in Perry Co.

Giving back, especially through organizations that provide valuable services & opportunities to all citizens in our communities, is a top priority for employees at Mulzer Family of Companies.  The fact that this ‘new’ ReHab home was literally in our backyard was icing on the cake!

The Third Annual Helping Habitat Charity Golf Outing is scheduled to take place on September 22, 2021 at Christmas Lake Golf Course in Santa Claus, Ind.  For more details on the golf fundraiser, click here.

IRMCA presents Ken Mulzer, Sr. with the E.B. Rayburn, Jr. Award

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Ready Mixed Concrete Association (IRMCA) presented Ken Mulzer, Sr., Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc., with its prestigious 2018 E.B. Rayburn, Jr. Award. The award was established to recognize outstanding leadership and innovation in marketing efforts in the ready mixed concrete industry in Indiana and was presented during the recent 2018 IRMCA Short Course Program.

Ken Mulzer, Jr. poses with his father, Ken Mulzer, Sr. after receiving the E.B. Rayburn, Jr. Award.

Ken Mulzer, Sr. is a retired construction materials executive who, alongside his four siblings, helped grow the family aggregate business into an industry powerhouse in the production of crushed stone, sand and gravel, including concrete and asphalt services. The family business got its start in 1935 when his father Arnold and uncles Edgar and Roland formed Mulzer Brothers, a small construction firm. In 1978, the company, led by Arnold, transformed into what is known today as Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc.

Mulzer Sr. began his career at a young age doing odd jobs around the quarries and concrete plant. He went on to graduate from Valparaiso University with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Geology before returning home to join the family business. Over the years, Ken has been a staunch advocate for the construction materials industry on the local, state and national levels, he has served as Chairman of the Board of the National Sand, Stone & Gravel Association, been a past President of the Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association, and has held numerous leadership roles in industry and community organizations near and far from his home in Santa Claus, Indiana, which he shares with his wife of 50 years, Andrea (Dee).

“The company and I are extremely proud of my father and the role that he has played in moving the concrete industry forward over the years,” commented Ken Mulzer, Jr., President of Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc.   “His intuition and foresight of the ever-changing business landscape proved invaluable to our firm and countless others throughout the state.”

South Perry Headstart Visit to Tower Quarry

Students from South Perry Headstart Preschool visited us last week on one of the coldest days of the Spring season so far. The rain stayed away and the kids had a great time learning about what we do at Tower Quarry and seeing some of our equipment up-close. Each student also left with a new friend, their very own Pet Rock.
