SUPPLYING AGGREGATES, AGRICULTURAL LIME AND SLAG FOR OVER 73 YEARS
Thompsons of Prudhoe have been supplying aggregates and agricultural lime for over 70 years. Thompsons operate five quarries/recycling centres throughout the North of England supplying crushed rock, sand and gravel, rock armour, agricultural lime and recycled aggregates to the construction and agriculture industries.
Coupled with one of the largest haulage fleets in the North of England, Thompsons have the capability to deliver all types of aggregate for construction and redevelopment projects, and offer the added value service of removing materials from sites for disposal and recycling as a back load.
What Is Quarrying?
Quarrying is a process that involves removing minerals from the ground which are later used to produce materials used for construction, production or manufacturing. Quarrying generally involves the removal of rock, sand and gravel as well as other materials from the earth which when extracted are most commonly used for construction and redevelopment. When quarrying is carried out, a “Quarry” is formed and this becomes a pit-like surface where minerals will be extracted from the earth.
