The Wade Sand & Gravel Co. is a quarry operator and supplier of crushed limestone and dolomite aggregate used in construction.

The company was founded by Robin Wade Sr in 1932 as the R. A. Wade Company, which contracted to operate the stone quarry for the Republic Steel Corporation's Thomas Furnaces plant. The company was reorganized under its present name in the 1970s. Its offices are located at 1200 10th Street West, off of Arkadelphia Road.

In the 1990s Robin Wade Jr and his wife Carolyn opened the former Thomas Coke Works on the site for use as studio space. The Thomas Project has supported numerous working artists.

The Wade family also operates a Superior Products plant in Chilton County and a Red Bluff Sand & Gravel operation in Prattville.
