History

Gene FisherCompany Founder, Gene Fisher
12/26/1928 - 12/17/2013

It all began on the vast prairies of southwestern North Dakota over 60 years ago. It was here that our parent company, Fisher Sand & Gravel, was born. Through the vision and leadership of company founder, Gene Fisher, what began as a small but enterprising aggregate processing company quickly emerged as a leader in portable crushing operations. Today Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. is ranked one of the top 25 sand and gravel producing companies in the United States.

By 1967 Gene recognized the need for durable, customized equipment. Thus he launched General Steel & Supply Company to design, fabricate, repair, and remodel quality aggregate processing equipment. Today General Steel operates two well-equipped metal fabrication facilities and our customized equipment is sold to countless companies throughout the United States and abroad.

In 1998, our president, Tommy Fisher, expanded operations to Arizona and the southwestern United States. The Fisher Industries portfolio currently includes concrete, asphalt, drilling, blasting, and paving services, along with selling various aggregate products, but the foundation and heartbeat of Fisher Industries has been, and will always be, mining aggregate materials. We pursue challenges and will continue to successfully tackle tough jobs.
