Braen Stone provides a diverse line of aggregates and related products and services to all parts of the construction industry. In addition to construction aggregates, we are a leading producer of hot mix asphalt and paving materials.
Historically, more than half of the aggregates we produce have been used in the construction and maintenance of infrastructure—highways and roads, and other public works projects. The remainder has been used in the construction of housing, nonresidential buildings, commercial and industrial facilities, as railroad ballast and in non-construction uses including agricultural and various industrial applications.
We produce these materials from natural mineral deposits such as trap rock, granite and limestone. Our quarrying process typically begins with drilling and blasting the rock into smaller pieces. Next, the material goes through various stages of crushing and screening to produce the sizes and specifications desired by our customers.
