Company History

History Photo Lyman-Richey Corporation has its origin as the Lyman Sand Company, which was established in 1884. In that year, the company commenced excavating sand with a clamshell from the Kaw River in Lawrence, Kansas and delivering it by horse and wagon. In 1892, the company moved to Nebraska where it has been based ever since. The company’s current name came about from its acquisition of the Richey Sand Company on September 30, 1918.
