AIC also managed The Lineweaver Trust’s interest in Table Mountain Quarry in Oroville, CA. Table Mountain Quarry, previously known as Green Rock Quarry, was established in 1987 on several hundred acres of leased land near Oroville. The owners successfully endured a multi-year battle to obtain a Mining Permit, and developed a full-service rock quarry, complete with a railroad spur, crushing equipment, and a fleet of tractors, loaders and trucks. The Lineweaver Trust sold its interest in 1993, while retaining royalty rights.
From 1986-1993, AIC was also involved in a textile manufacturing and importing business in mainland China, designing, manufacturing and importing handmade Amish-design quilts, in a venture named Unique Quilts, Inc. After making several dozen trips to and from China, AIC owner John Lineweaver sold its interest in the venture in 1993.
