RiverStone Group, Inc. traces its heritage back to the late 19th century when the Moline Channel Ice Company was formed in 1892 harvesting ice from the Mississippi River. The ice company then bought the Moline Sand Company in 1900 and later merged the two companies to form the Moline Consumers Company (MCC) in 1917. Since that time, the company has operated many other businesses including hotels, a brewery, beer and liquor distributors, and a coal mine. Over the years, the company has sold many of the auxiliary companies to focus on its core business of construction aggregates. This refocus in strategy was emphasized by the name change of the company from MCC to RiverStone Group, Inc. in 2001.
Privately owned and operated by the 3rd generation of one of the founding families, RiverStone is proud of its heritage and is committed to continued growth and excellence into the 21st century.
