Jackson, TN


U.S. Silica's Jackson plant processes mid to fine-grain sand deposits from the Claiborne Formation, which is 99% pure and off-white to white in color, making it ideal for the textile fiberglass and ceramics manufacturing.


Nick's Silica Company began operation in Jackson in 1986 until U.S. Silica took ownership of the Jackson plant in 1998 and turned it into one of its premier grinding facilities. With the workforce focused on safe, low-cost and efficient operations, the Jackson plant provides consistent and timely supplies to all customers, all of the time.


The Jackson employees are committed to the ideal of stewardship toward their neighbors and minimal impact on the surrounding environment.

To achieve this ideal, the Jackson plant recycles all process water, provides surrounding wildlife with productive habitats through the land reclamation process, and is dedicated to surpassing the Department of Environmental Quality standards.
