CORPORATE HISTORY

- John B. Ewles, Inc. was formed in 1963 as a General Engineering Contractor with headquarters in Orange County.

- From 1963 to 1980, John B. Ewles Inc., played a key role in the building of street and highway projects throughout Orange County.

- In the late 60’s, John B. Ewles Inc., started to stockpile concrete and asphalt, crushing it and incorporating the use of Recycled Base Materials on job sites.

- The company recognized the importance of recycling such materials and established its first such facility in Stanton in 1970.

- Based on customer demand, a second recycling facility was opened in Irvine in 1979.

- At this point, John B. Ewles Inc., modified its business strategy to become Ewles Materials to focus entirely on becoming the dominant supplier of Recycled Base Material in Orange County.

- The Irvine operation was subsequently expanded to function as an Urban Quarry.

- In 1985, Ewles sought to further improve its full service capabilities with the establishment of a dedicated trucking company that has steadily grown in its delivery of materials to job sites throughout Orange County.

- A third, larger recycling facility in San Juan Capistrano was opened in 1989.

- In 2003, Ewles Materials introduced a new portable crushing plant. It is one of the largest production plants in Southern California, exceeding 500 tons per hour.

- Also in 2003, Ewles Materials celebrated 40 years of doing business, and continues to expand to meet the demands of its valued customers.

- To support the company’s expansion plans, Ewles Materials added a fourth recycling operation in Murrieta, moving further south into San Diego County, to accommodate the tremendous growth and recycling needs occurring in this community.
