Established in 1946 in Collins, NY, the Gernatt Family of Companies has a rich history of serving the Buffalo, NY area. Founder Dan Gernatt, Sr. started his career as a dairy farmer before he began to market gravel and related products from his farm. He worked hard at this new enterprise, and a lifetime of labor allowed Dan and his family to create a thriving business. The Gernatt Family of Companies provides hundreds of jobs across the area, and our team of dedicated employees is the key to our success.
11 Locations in the WNY Area, One Great Team
In order to provide for customers big and small, including the New York State Department of Transportation and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Gernatt Asphalt Products and our family of companies have 11 locations across Western New York. We produce topsoil and sand and gravel products in Chaffee, Freedom, Gowanda, Great Valley, Hanover, South Dayton, and Springville. Additionally, we produce and supply asphalt from our plants in Collins, Springville, Delevan, West Seneca, and Westfield.
At every site, our team is committed to providing high-quality products suitable for a wide range of uses. Both the New York State and Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation approve our products for use in road maintenance and construction projects.
A History of Involvement in Western New York
Major projects across the Buffalo and Erie County, NY area were built using our sand, gravel, asphalt, topsoil, and other rock products. From asphalt millings and landscape gravel to concrete sand, play sand, and drainage stone, we’ll be there to help you transform your property. We have been proud to provide essential construction materials for the following buildings and construction projects:
- New Era Field: Home of the Buffalo Bills
- Coca-Cola Field: Home of the Buffalo Bisons
- Key Bank Center: Home of the Buffalo Sabres
- New York State Thruway
- Southern Tier Expressway (Route 86)
Our business is primarily concentrated on and in the six counties of Western New York, however, we have successfully marketed and sold our products as far away as Long Island, NY.
