Aggregate is defined as sand, rocks, gravel, crushed stone, shale; any rock product that is mined out of the ground. The crushing of aggregate allows for its use in all types of construction. Everything from roads, schools, and houses to hospitals, bridges, and water treatment plants require aggregates to be crushed. As a non-renewable natural resource, much like oil or gas, aggregates must be protected and respected.
Crushing is part of a larger aggregate production industry that is estimated to have a market size in Canada of CA$2.7B. Machinery Supply proudly supports this vital industry with the best and most respected manufacturer brands.
