We are a major supplier of high quality crushed granite to markets across northern Europe.
With our own fleet of self discharging vessels, strategically placed coastal super quarries and extensive knowledge of the European markets, we can provide a full product and logistical solution for our customers, through ports that span the coastline from Spain to Russia and beyond.
We are a member of LafargeHolcim and have production and logistical capabilities enabling us to supply some of the largest construction projects in Europe, from power stations and offshore pipelines to port redevelopments, roads and railways.
Our dedicated technical team also allows us to develop material for highly specialist uses and complex projects, all to country specific and European specifications.
Crushed granite ranging in size from washed sand up to offshore material is supplied from two super quarries, at Yeoman Glensanda, on the west coast of Scotland and Halsvik Aggregates, north of Bergen in Norway. Our third quarry at Kvalsund in the far north of Norway, contributes to a combined production capacity in excess of 11.5 million tonnes per annum.
Beyond selling directly to customers from Yeoman Glensanda, and Yeoman Halsvik, we also supply to our European partners:- Germany, Poland, France and Latvia, where virtual quarries are in operation, and where the imported material is reprocessed for the local markets. We also have significant experience and well established trading partners in Denmark, The Netherlands, Russia, and the Nordic and Baltic States.
Sustainability, The responsible source
As a major supplier of materials to the construction industry, we are very aware of the impact our products have on people and the environment. We have a real passion for sustainability and protecting the world for future generations to come. Our goal is to create environments built to the highest standards, not only through the provision of the highest quality and most sustainable materials, but also through working closely with our customers, clients, communities and other stakeholders in the supply chain to find the best solution.
In the UK, we have led the way by becoming the first company to be certified to BES 6001 - the Responsible Sourcing framework developed by Building Research Establishment (BRE). The BES 6001 framework standard is an independent certification scheme that assesses responsible sourcing policies and practices throughout the supply chain of construction products.
We are constantly addressing issues such as health & safety, quality control, ethical trading, carbon and water management, biodiversity and social responsibility so that we can offer our customers truly sustainable solutions. Now more than ever, it is our inherent responsibility to show strong leadership and be a beacon to both businesses and the community. Our employees, community partners, contractors and customers play a vital role in the sustainable future of our business and the world around us.
