From small beginnings, Chaney Enterprises now operates in several states in the Mid-Atlantic region and is the construction material supplier of choice throughout our market area. This comes from a firm commitment to a clear vision and mission.
Since the early 2000’s, Chaney Enterprises has seen tremendous growth in their geographic service areas and capabilities, while staying true to their roots. With a plethora of recent acquisitions and partnerships, Chaney is now serving multiple market areas throughout Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia including Southern MD, Baltimore-Washington Metro, Delmarva, the Upper Eastern Shore, the Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia, Richmond, Hampton Roads, and will soon be opening their first ready-mix concrete plant in North Carolina.
Additionally, Chaney Enterprises can service the entire Mid-Atlantic region with aggregates using their gravity bottom drop style train based in Waldorf, MD and their barge terminals based in Seaford, DE, Onancock, VA and Chesapeake, VA.
From its headquarters in Gambrills, Maryland, Chaney operates over 45 ready-mix concrete plants, 12 sand and gravel facilities, and CE Pumping. The company is passionate about creating sustainable facilities, providing environmentally-friendly products, and reclaiming land to restore it for a new purpose. Furthermore, Chaney Enterprises is unwavering in their commitment to their people, their community and their environment. They continue to donate time, dollars and materials to non-profits and other charitable organizations through the Chaney Cares program.
At a very young age, Eugene “Babe” Chaney was driven by an entrepreneurial spirit ---- whether it was delivering vegetables in Baltimore as a young teenager, or as a high school student hauling gravel in a one truck operation well into the night and early morning.
Eugene Chaney started in the 50’s by taking a chance on bidding a contract in Prince Georges County. It was a chance because he did not have any equipment and was not fully educated on this industry. Well, he got the contract and therefore had to perform. So, he borrowed enough money to buy 5 pieces of equipment. His goal was to fulfill this contract and then become the best in the sand and gravel business in Southern Maryland. This contract was successfully completed, so he went on to develop a vision of what his new company would look like in the future. He created the vision of a full service construction materials supplier in Southern Maryland. Through the work of himself and his family, they created what you see now as Southern Maryland’s full service construction materials supplier. Charles County Concrete and Charles County Sand & Gravel, later changed to Chaney Enterprises, started with a dream from a man named Eugene “Babe” Chaney in 1962, more than 60 years ago.
While Mr. Chaney is no longer with us, his entrepreneurial spirit and hard work ethic are still part of the company’s culture and driving the company forward. He set the tone which has made Chaney Enterprises an industry leader on the local, state, and national level. The Chaney family is still actively involved in the operations and direction of the company.
