Rock Products Chosen as Official Sponsor of the NSSGA’s “Young Leaders” Mark S. Walsh Annual Leadership Award
In 2016, Rock Products will focus increased media resources on the future of the aggregates industry: producers under 40 years of age. Through an exclusive partnership with the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association, we will honor our “Young Leaders” by sponsoring the Mark S. Walsh Annual Leadership Award and sponsor the Young Leaders luncheon at AGG1.
In addition to supporting these activities, Rock Products will develop research and reports on the future of the industry while devoting editorial in the magazine to honoring those individuals who are so critical to the ongoing success of this industry.

Frac Sand Insider
In 2013, Rock Products initiated wide-ranging coverage of the burgeoning frac sand industry. Frac sand production in the United States was growing at a rate of 23% a year until the recent decline in oil prices. But with a renewed look at refracking old gas and oil wells, developing the estimated 2,500 to 3,500 incomplete wells, and increased per-well usage, the frac sand industry is poised for a strong rebound. Frac sand producers are seeking equipment solutions to production challenges, as well as storage and logistics improvements. Rock Products is the only aggregates industry magazine featuring a frac sand section in every monthly issue, and a bimonthly frac sand enewsletter. The Frac Sand Insider Conference, which had its debut in 2013 in Pittsburgh, will be held again in 2016. Frac Sand Insider will help producers prepare for the future while weathering immediate market uncertainties — and our exhibitors will help provide the services and equipment that the producer demand.
