We are the second largest aggregates producer in North America. Aggregates are naturally occurring mineral deposits such as granite, limestone and sandstone.
Aggregates are inert granular materials, such as sand, gravel or crushed stone and an essential ingredient in many construction materials. Our businesses extract these deposits and process them for sale. The uses for aggregates are many and varied: in asphalt pavements used to make roads, in the concrete for bridges, in golf course sand traps, and in building foundations, to name a few.
From small to large-sized aggregates, we fulfill each order to meet customer specifications.
Because we are a vertically integrated organization, a large percentage of the aggregates we produce are sold internally, which promotes company-wide financial growth and efficiency.
Our aggregates facilities and reserves are located throughout the United States and Canada to serve local markets, keeping transportation costs down for our customers. Many of our companies are regional aggregates providers and available to help customers with product-specific information, location details and costs.
We provide aggregates for infrastructure, commercial, and residential markets. We take pride in differentiating ourselves by delivering exceptional customer service and quality.
We go above and beyond simply complying with regulations. We continuously work to maintain and improve quality, safety, and social responsibility.
