about us

A Company Built On A Solid Foundation

Foothills Sand and Gravel entered the mining scene as H and S Developers, Inc in 1962. The pit was for private use until the mid 80’s when customers wanted to face their RV lots with gravel to enhance their properties. The “H and S Pit” was renamed Foothills Sand and Gravel and became ADOT certified in 2011.

Since our founding, Hank Schechert helped individuals and other developers by providing road materials, gravel for RV lots and drain rock in septic systems for the community. Foothills Sand and Gravel is family owned and operated and we take pride in serving the small customer as well as the large. We are conveniently located on Hwy 8 with easy access to most Yuma and Welton area construction projects. Our 160 acre site is home to an abundance of rock. We meet all ADOT specs for asphalt and cement as well as Yuma County specs for road base. We stockpile an assortment of product and can custom crush or stage a master contractor on large projects.

Regardless of the job, big or small, we have you covered.
