What we do

We took our first step into the North American Materials market in 1985 with the acquisition of Callanan Industries, a leading aggregates and asphalt company in Upstate New York.

Over 35 years of operation, we have grown to become the leading vertically integrated supplier of aggregates, asphalt, readymixed concrete, cement, paving and construction services across North America. Our customers include national, regional and local governments, contractors, homebuilders, homeowners and sub-contractors.

We supply a broad range of product specifications in each of our Materials lines - across aggregates, lime, cement, concrete products and asphalt. We are also active in expanding the use of recycled materials and the development of lower energy-intensity products, playing our part in contributing to a more resilient and sustainable built environment.

The materials we supply

Our materials are founded in resource-backed assets, which support the manufacture and supply of aggregates, lime, cement, readymixed concrete, concrete products and asphalt.

These materials are used extensively in a wide range of construction applications, from major public road and infrastructure projects, to the development and refurbishment of commercial buildings and residential communities.

Aggregates

Aggregates are naturally occurring materials deposits such as granite, limestone and sandstone. Our businesses extract these deposits and process them for sale. They are supplied as a range of products for use in general construction and engineering projects as well as in a variety of additional CRH product lines including asphalt, readymixed concrete, infrastructure products, architectural products, and bagged mortars and concrete mixes.

Asphalt

Asphalt is primarily used in road surfacing and other transport infrastructure including airport runways. It consists of aggregates bound together with bitumen, a by-product of the oil industry. Our key customers include government and local authorities who are responsible for the construction and maintenance of road networks. In order to minimise emissions, we use recycled materials and innovative technologies. 100% of asphalt is recyclable for future uses.

Cement

Cement is the primary binding agent in the production of concrete products for the construction industry. Produced from limestone, cement is most commonly mixed with sand, stone or other aggregates and water to form concrete. While most cement is used in markets close to production sites, it can also be traded internationally.

Paving & Construction

In North America and parts of Europe, we offer end-to-end pavement installation services, covering everything from roads and highways to shopping malls to runways. A significant portion of our paving work is repair and maintenance of roadways due to regular wear and tear caused by heavy axle traffic and freeze thaw impact on road surfaces. We provide the materials, crews, equipment and expertise needed for preparation, paving and maintenance of traffic flows during the construction phase.
