In the summer of 2013, Roy V., John B. and Jacob Swindal of Masonry Arts, Inc. teamed up with Claire L. Burgess and Chinese businessman and investor Tan Changyan to form TBGS Quarry, LLC, now doing business as Sylacauga Marble Quarry, which quarries Alabama White marble. Operation of the quarry started in December 2014, and the team looks to continue development of the site for the next couple of years while also producing marketable block in varying color and quality ranges.
