Four generations ago, John H. ("Doc") Corliss began hauling gravel out of the back of his buckboard wagon to service his neighbors—farmers, dairymen, and homeowners. Today John Corliss’s company continues to take pride in helping both large and small clients by providing quality aggregates and concrete products to customers located in the Pierce and King County areas. Be it a newlywed couple planning the foundation of their dream home or a major contractor needing to direct the flow of gravel and concrete trucks to his multi-million dollar project, Corliss Resources provides the knowledge, means and manpower to get the job done on time and on budget.

The Corliss family has been doing business in the Pierce County Communities for almost a century. We take pride in the communities in which we and our employees’ families live. That is why we have been committed to donate our time and resources to development of schools and community organizations.
The Corliss Family’s business began in the year 1919 when John (Doc) Corliss provided gravel from the Corliss family homestead to Henry Kaiser Paving for building State Highway No. 5 between Sumner and Buckley. Doc’s son Tim with his wife Vera and their son Harry expanded into the concrete business in 1945. Since that time Harry has added gravel processing plants and concrete batch plants to Enumclaw, Puyallup, Federal Way and Kent which provides excellent service ability to South King County and Pierce County. In 2003, Harry’s son Scott spearheaded the building of the state of the art facility and truck shop located at the original Sumner site which was featured in Concrete Products Magazine in August of 2004. Today Scott Corliss is the President of Corliss Resources, Inc. and he has the assistance of his two sons, Eric Corliss, V.P. of Administration and Finance and Steve Corliss, V.P. of Operations making it the fourth generation to own and operate the business.
