We believe there is a clear difference between a material supplier and a true partner
Our expert teams go above and beyond to provide advanced solutions to material constraints, tackling schedule, availability and quality/technical issues聽and ensuring the most efficient transport of materials.聽We safely mine quality aggregates that fuel infrastructure, and we鈥檙e proud to be a trusted partner to our clients.
Aggregates are the most mined material in the world. We expertly mine high-quality aggregates that are used as base materials under foundations, roads, railroads and drainage. Aggregate products include bases, specialty sands, decorative/landscape, rip rap/gabion and drain rock. About 60 percent of our sales by volume include aggregates for asphalt concrete and Portland cement concrete. 聽
We adhere to pavement specifications and also develop custom mix designs to meet client requests. Our products include hot, warm and cold mix asphalt as well as rubberized asphalt concrete. Surface durability, temperature, reflection, roadway noise and volume of traffic are all factors in selecting appropriate pavement mix design.
Granite promotes the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and warm-mix asphalt (WMA), two products that conserve raw materials and energy, cut emissions from operations and improve conditions for workers. Using RAP is usually more cost-efficient, and it鈥檚 often equal or greater in quality than traditional methods.
Sentinels of Mine Safety
Cosponsored by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and the National Mining Association (NMA), we are proud to be awarded the Sentinels of Safety Award for our commitment to mine safety operations. The annual award recognizes outstanding safety records and encourages more effective accident prevention programs among the country鈥檚 mineral extractive industries.
Award-Winning Pavement, Plant and Site Operations
Sponsored by the National Asphalt Paving Association, the Diamond Achievement program assesses six aspects of plant/site operations: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance, and community relations. Granite is a proud recipient of the Diamond Achievement award for Quality, Paving and Sustainability at over 50 of our plant and aggregate sites, year-over-year.
Portable Asphalt and Concrete Batch Plants
Portable asphalt, hot plants and concrete batch plants offer numerous benefits鈥攊ncluding increase in production volume and reduction in haul time to remote jobsites. We offer silos, feeder conveyors, portable crushing and central mix units. Please contact your local materials plant for availability.
