Today Pattison is the first link in the energy independence chain.

Today, Pattison Sand Company employs upwards of 300 people, and leads the charge towards American Energy Independence by producing industrial sand for the natural gas and oil industries. Our product is an incredibly clean, gleaming white, rounded grain silica sand that is a vital part of the process to safely tap into the oil bearing shale that lies miles below below the water table through thousands of feet of solid rock in large portions of our nation.

Looking for ways to increase efficiency and better serve customers, Pattison Sand Company has now embarked on another ambitious project. Pattison Sand is building a state-of-the-art rail siding and load out facility on the mine property. This will require the removal of millions of tons of rock. They will add value to that excavated rock and sell it as aggregate. It will be used throughout the Midwest for roads, bridges and improved infrastructure.
