Aggregates

Aggregate is the term for crushed stone, sand, and gravel manufactured for use in various construction applications. Production of these products requires mining and excavating raw materials, followed by progressive stages of crushing, screening, washing, and blending. Our aggregate products range in size from rip-rap, where each stone may weigh several pounds, to washed sand for use in concrete and asphalt products. Their intended use determines the numerous sizes and gradations, each complying with specifications established by governmental agencies, independent standards organizations like ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), or our customer’s requirements.

Sand & Gravel

In Arizona, most construction aggregates and gravel resources are harvested from alluvial deposits along mostly dry river floodplains. Through a series of crushing, screening, and washing operations, aggregates are produced to manufacture ready mixed concrete, asphalt, precast concrete products, and for many other uses in various construction projects.

Our diligent quality control and flexible processing plants ensure that a wide variety of products are available to meet the needs and specifications of almost any customer.
