Moments in Our History

1958

After leaving his job as a truck operator in the military, Kenneth Minick purchased a truck and began hauling sand.

1959

Kenneth met his future wife Nova, who would have a pivotal role in running Minick Materials.

1960

Kenneth married Nova. Soon thereafter Nova began to take customer orders over the phone and scheduled deliveries while Kenneth drove the truck.

Sand and soil deliveries were $5.00 and spreading it cost $8.00.

1974

When stock piling products behind his home became too much, Kenneth purchased the North Council Road property when it was not much more than a small house and a large field.

Sam Minick began his career at Minick at this time loading limestone and sand into customer’s vehicles when he was 10 years old.

1979

At the end of the 70's, Minick Materials had developed into one of the leading topsoil companies in the region.

1982

As we expanded our business and materials sold, we changed our name from Minick Trucking to Minick Materials.

1989

Sam Minick returns to the family business, after spending time working elsewhere. He brought back new ideas and knowledge gained through studying horticulture. At the time, Minick Materials only had 4 employees.

1990

Sam's wife, Teresa, began a flagstone patio project. Ultimately Sam finished the project which inspired him to expand the company into selling stone.

1993

In the early 90's, Minick Materials significantly increased its selection of stone making it one of the largest stone dealers in the state.

1995

The tragedy of the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building occurred.
