Most of our natural aggregates are mined right at our Nazareth Road, Kalamazoo location. They are taken out of a glacial deposit left behind many years ago. After mining, the sand and gravel is screened, washed, or even crushed to produce usable graded material to meet ASTM standards for construction aggregates. There are many different sizes and shapes to choose from.
