The UK quarrying industry is one of the oldest in the country. For hundreds of years quarrying has been an integral part of our industrial heritage. Each year the UK Quarrying industry supports the building of 180,000 homes, maintenance of our 230,000 road and 10,000 mile rail networks plus hospital, school and university improvement programmes.

The industry employs around 20,000 people directly and a similar number indirectly. There are approximately 1,300 quarries in the UK producing £3bn in products every year; employing modern quarrying methods and equipment so that the UK leads the world in environmental standards.
Together, our Flygt and Godwin brands offer us a unique position in the quarrying industry; extending our capabilities and allowing us to offer a wider range of solutions to customers in this sector.
