Lunenburg Skate Park Team visits our the Lunenburg Quarry!

Everyone meet the Lunenburg Skate Park Project team! To help celebrate our centennial anniversary, PJ Keating has pledged to raise goods and services valued at $60,000 to support the development of the Lunenburg Skate Park. We gave the Skate Park team a tour of our Lunenburg Quarry to show how we produce the materials used in the park.

Please help us create a community space for all ages to enjoy by donating to our GoFundMe here https://gofund.me/724fb455.

Together, we will turn a dream into reality!

Nothing beats a job at the beach!

It was a beautiful day to start paving the parking lot at Second Beach in Middletown, Rhode Island. This parking lot is approximately 51,000 SY, requiring us to lay about 9,000 tons of asphalt.

Eric Lundberg Announces Retirement


Eric Lundberg has been with P.J. Keating for 35 years, and today May 27, 2021, we were honored to celebrate his retirement.

Eric has been an esteemed member of the P.J. Keating team since 1986, starting as a Sales Representative and advancing his career to Vice President of Commercial Sales. P.J. Keating will certainly miss Eric’s knowledge, work ethic, and professionalism, but we are excited for him to take on the next chapter of his life and enjoy the fruits of his labor. We wish him, his wife Karen, and the rest of his family good health and happiness. We hope he will enjoy many days on the golf course, out fishing, and spending time with his family.

Thank you, Eric, for all your years of service, and congratulations on your retirement. We wish you all the best!
