Mid-Ohio Valley Lime, Inc. is located 6 miles south of Marietta, Ohio. It was founded by Orvil Merrill and is now 40 years old. We operate the only Hi Calcium Hydrate lime plant in Ohio. Our KVS 15 ton per hour hydrating plant has the ability to make 360 tons per day or 10,000 tons per month. In 2002 upgrades were made to the plant which included a air classification system. We also have a back up ball mill system to ensure production of our high quailty hydrate lime.
To ensure timely delivery of our lime products we began with our own delivery fleet. In the mid 90's the decision was made to spin off this trucking fleet. We then started Mid-Ohio Valley Bulk Transport, Inc. At the same time, the trucking fleets shop was moved a mile south of the lime plant. In 2007 we saw the need for a second shop on that site. We are now also operating a complete trailer repair facility out of our main shop.
In recent years we have expanded our lime slurry business. Originally we produced lime slurry only in Marietta. In 2009 we expanded our slurry production to Gibsonburg, Ohio. In 2010 we have expanded again to also handle carbide lime slurry in our new Dayton, Ohio location.
