Quarries and mixing plants owned by the Group
For 5000 years, humankind has made use of natural stone. This building material is the proverbial rock on which our modern society stands. The Basalt-Actien-Gesellschaft has been dedicated to quarrying and processing for more than 125 years. Today, the company leads the Werhahn Aggregates business unit.
Hard stones are quarried and processed in ca. 100 quarries owned by the Group. They are used, for example, as railway ballast or for bank reinforcement. Also, some of these mineral raw materials are used for producing asphalt mixtures.
In addition, the Aggregates business unit runs 225 mixing plants owned by the Group. Further fields of activity are the recycling and marketing of construction waste, as well as the storage of uncontaminated, non-reusable construction waste residues. Construction chemicals, for example for sealing foundations, round off the range of services.
