Plaisted Companies Acquires C5 Stone


Elk River, MN – Plaisted Companies is proud to announce the acquisition of C5 Stone.  C5 Stone is a leader in the sourcing of boulders and will bolster the already impressive array of landscape materials that Plaisted Companies is able to provide.  C5 Stone was established in 2018, at that time, as a complimentary extension to Rustic Waters Landscaping.  They opened their doors with two tractor-clam trailer combinations, an excavator, and a track loader.  Accurate sizing and quality boulders can make or break a project.  Being able to offer clam delivery also allowed them to place boulders in areas other trucks couldn’t.  In 2020, they shifted their focus and closed Rustic Waters to completely focus on C5 Stone.  They saw business double that year and have been growing ever since.

“C5 Stone and Plaisted Companies are both family owned and our core values couldn’t be more similar.  We value our clients, our team members, and serving our communities.  We are beyond excited to be joining their team and diversifying the products we can offer.”  – Derek Chicos – C5 Stone

“We at Plaisted Companies are very excited to have C5 Stone as a part of our company. Having the right equipment and knowledge for large boulders and other decorative stone was something we were lacking. Being able to keep Derek and his crew was also a very big part of the acquisition” – Alec Plaisted – Plaisted Companies
