One of the Australia’s leading providers
Hanson is one of the Australia’s leading aggregate producers. We’re proud of that, and we’re proud to cater for all customers, from the very large to the very small.
An aggregate is defined as a collection of items gathered together to form a total quantity. In construction terms, it is defined as a collection of materials used in construction, from sand, gravel and crushed stone to slag and recycled crushed concrete. In everyday terms, you can think of aggregates as a collection of rocks, from those only just larger than a match head all the way through to large rocks and boulders.
Aggregates are either:
Aggregates are the most mined minerals in the world.
Aggregates are often used in composite materials like concrete and asphalt concrete, adding strength to the composite material. In terms of volume of space occupied, they are the largest component in concrete.
Construction aggregates are also used as a base material for roads and railways, adding stability. Due to their high hydraulic conductivity value, they are widely used in drainage applications, including septic drains, road side drains and retaining wall drains, as well as in the filter around pipes.
One of the Australia’s leading aggregate providers, at Hanson we deliver on scale, size and quality.
At Hanson, we have built our reputation over many years on two promises that we always deliver on: great quality products and great quality service.
With over 70 quarries around the country, Hanson not only has an excellent geographic spread but is also known for its commitment to quality.
At Hanson we believe that great service comes from putting ourselves in our customers’ shoes, and walking a mile in them.
So if you’re part of an organisation constructing a railway link, we know you’ll need hundreds of thousands of tonnes of material during the project lifetime. We understand that one of your major requirements will be around price, and we’ll meet you there. But your requirements will also be around volume, and we’ll ensure you receive your product through the entirety of the project, and will always keep up with your demand.
Alternately, if you’re a builder working on two or three house builds and at one of those sites have a bobcat ready for a 7am pour, we understand that if the concrete isn’t there by that time, then you have a bobcat sitting idle and that’s serious money lost. That’s why we always deliver on time.
At Hanson, we have built our reputation on getting our aggregates to you, on time and to specification. Simple as that.
