Corliss: A Family of Pioneers

Five generations ago, John H. Corliss began hauling gravel out of the back of his buckboard wagon to service his neighbors. Today John Corliss’s company continues to take pride in helping large and small clients by providing quality aggregates and concrete products to customers.

1892 – John “Doc” Corliss moves from Minnesota to
Sumner and buys the land where the Sumner plant is today.

1919 – Gravel plant constructed in Sumner used by Henry Kaiser to construct local roads. After Kaiser moved out and completed his road projects, John Corliss began washing gravel after he would make his doctor visits. Young Tim Corliss would help his father wash gravel. Tim would then transport sand and gravel to downtown Sumner and pour a foundation for a house. A section of sidewalk, or a city street mixing the concrete in a small portable mixer.

 

1941 – Harry enlists in the Navy at 16 years old

1958 – Harry opens a concrete plant in Federal way with partner and friend Doug Clerget.

1945 – First two mixers purchased when Harry returns from WWII.

1966 – Harry Corliss acquires the Weyerhauser sand and gravel lease in Enumclaw from the Moulden family (formally Tougal and Olson) Immediately builds a new concrete batch plant.

1969 – Harry buys 100 acres of property from the Lipoma family just south of Thun Field Airport and opens Puyallup sand and gravel.

1976 – Scott Corliss joins Corliss full time

1974– Tim Corliss joins Corliss full time

1995 – Harry purchases the Sunrise Master Planned Community

2003 – Scott Corliss remodels the Sumner batch plant and builds a state-of-the-art batch plant and maintenance facility.
