Decades ago, Kirby Jantz, a master stonemason, owned Kirby Jantz Construction with a focus on masonry. Brick-like units are set by hand in streets, plazas, and walkways but Kirby had noted a newer style of construction using “interlocking
concrete pavers.” He soon had the vision to be the first in the Midwest to specialize in these pavers.
In 1987, Kirby’s son, Chad Jantz, teamed up with his father. Using a truck and wheelbarrow, the two formed Heartstone. In 1998 they added a new division to the company offering aggregate recycling. A service that enables contractors to use materials crushed from old pavements. Thirty years later Heartstone is operated by the second and third generations. Chad’s wife Alicia and their two sons, Parker and Christian, are now helping to lead the company into the future.
Our company is a good example of the grit and determination of a Midwest family-owned company that finds life in a competitive market landscape. We’ve earned a solid reputation among area builders, contractors, architects, engineers, and city officials the hard and honest way. Innovation, hard work, persistence, and cultivating good people continue to be our guiding principles to success. See our work that led us here!
In 1998, Heartstone purchased a recycling plant and now performs demolition concrete and asphalt recycling by contract. Rubble is reused as a new road base on highway projects. This saves on hauling costs, dump fees, and conserves valuable landfill space that has traditionally been consumed by demolition concrete.

Heartstone maintains the highest levels of integrity, honesty and craftsmanship in our work by solidifying long-lasting relationships with our clients. From concrete pavers, retaining walls, sealers, or hardscape restoration – outdoor environments are a direct expression of style and create character. And we’ll do what it takes to make it perfect for our clients.
We believe that we have been blessed with “good brains and good resources,” therefore it’s our duty to invest them wisely in giving back to our community’s development. The result will be a positive contribution in our community and a measurable benefit for Wichita families to enjoy a livelihood and an opportunity to apply individual skills and abilities. We currently have open career opportunities and plan to continue providing job opportunities to Wichitans as we grow!
