Hanson Aggregates

Hanson Aggregates is one of the largest producers of crushed stone, sand and gravel in the U.S. With its robust network of plants and ability to transport materials by water and rail, Hanson Aggregates has the capability to supply construction projects in major markets across the country. Hanson supplies aggregates for a variety of uses. While the majority of our materials are used for the production of ready mixed concrete and asphalt, our aggregates are also used for base material, filter stone, drainage and erosion control, landscaping, railroad ballast and backfill.


Hanson Trust was formed in 1964 by James Hanson and Gordon White. It rapidly grew by acquisition and became a multinational concern with interests in chemicals, construction, energy, tobacco and other industries. Over the years, Hanson shifted its focus to construction materials and sold its non-core business. By 2006, Hanson PLC had become the world’s largest producer of aggregates. HeidelbergCement acquired Hanson in 2007 and integrated its North American operations with the Lehigh Cement Company. The Lehigh and Hanson business units in North America are collectively known as Lehigh Hanson, Inc.
