Joseph Busik founded Delaware Quarries, Inc. in February 1946. He had just returned home from flying B17's over Europe in World War II. The Lt. Colonel purchased America's oldest operating quarry which had been operating since 1758, on the banks of the Delaware River, in Bucks County, PA. In the beginning, Joe would cut stone early in the day, and then at night would put on his salesman hat and go out to sell the stone veneer that he had just produced. Princeton University was one of Joe's first customers. Delaware Quarries supplied all of the Argillite and Sandstone veneers on their buildings constructed after WWII, and Princeton University continues to buy stone veneer and flagstone from us today. Some of the University buildings faced with our veneer are:
* The new Graduate Dorms * The Engineering Quadrangle * The Princeton University Store * Institute for Advanced Study * The Gymnasium * The Educational Testing Service Center
