Hipps Stone is a first-generation company that began in 1998. However, Shane Hipps’ passion for the landscape and masonry business started at a young age of nine years old. He first began learning to harvest stone, driving trucks and running equipment with his father in the mountains of North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Shane’s first business adventure began with owning his own masonry business. He started with a shovel, a cement mixing hoe and a 1980 truck that his father, Carroll Hipps, loaned him the money to purchase. Shane accepted all of the business that he possibly could, most weeks working seven days straight, 12-18 hours per day.

While working in the masonry field, he visited a local stone yard needing to purchase a few pieces of stone to complete a job, only to be told he would need to purchase the entire pallet. As many masons know finishing the job means receiving the final check for the job completed. This particular job was a small job, that meant purchasing the entire pallet of stone would take away all of the profit from the job. This is when Shane’s idea was born! “I will sell you one, a ton or a whole truck load.” Shane purchased an old forklift and a small lot in Swannanoa, NC, starting his first retail yard selling only what customers needed.

Hipps Stone now has 7 locations expanding from Western North Carolina, Upstate South Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. Hipps Stone ships material locally and across many parts of the United States. From the smallest project to the largest project, the Hipps Stone Team takes great pride in serving you. The Hipps Stone Team is made up of mostly local and former stone masons with countless years of experience. The newest member to join the Hipps Stone Team full time is Holden Hipps, Shane’s oldest son. Holden Hipps is looking to carry on the family tradition in the masonry and landscape industry.
