Chaney Enterprises has opened a new concrete plant in Lincoln, Delaware.
The Lincoln concrete plant, located at 11663 Windmill Lane, directly off U.S. Route 113, will create approximately a dozen new jobs. The Lincoln plant is Chaney’s second concrete plant in Sussex County and sixth concrete plant on the Delmarva Peninsula. The company’s other Delmarva concrete plants are in Queenstown (MD), Cambridge (MD), Salisbury (MD), Bishopville (MD) and Seaford (DE).
The Lincoln plant is Chaney’s first zero-water discharge concrete plant. Zero-water discharge is an engineering approach to water treatment where all water is reused and recycled. This environmental achievement is possible due to a unique CO2 water filtration system the company has installed.
The new Lincoln facility has also earned Green-Star Certification from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA). Green-Star Certification is earned by companies that use Environmental Management Systems as a tool for environmental benchmarking and continual improvement, and to recognize those who adhere to essential principals of the environmental and sustainability movement of the ready mixed concrete industry.
Chaney’s Lincoln concrete plant also features modern, sustainable, and community-friendly features such as dust suppression and dust collector equipment, white noise backup signals on all on-site equipment, pH treatment systems, and an all concrete parking and entryway that reduced outdoor lighting needs by 30 percent.
“Having this new concrete plant in Lincoln will allow us to better serve the businesses and residents along the Delaware Coast,” said Francis "Hall" Chaney, III, chief executive officer of Chaney Enterprises. “Working with a time-restricted perishable product like concrete, reaching the Delaware beaches was a challenge for us previously. We are looking forward to supporting our customers, the community and the economy of Southern Delaware.”
