GBC owns a Quarry on Waitohu Valley Road, near Otaki. We produce a wide range of graded aggregate for Domestic, Farm and Roading use.
With an explosion in demand for our Roading Aggregate, supplying to the M2PP project, the recent upgrade of the fixed plant was timely. The upgrade now sees 4 times the amount of aggregate being made, control features also added. This enables the plant to produce grades of metal that met strict New Zealand specifications. An independant Labourtory tests these metals regulary.
Permanant Machinery at the Quarry include:
- CAT D8 Dozer
- CAT 345 Excavator
- 2 x CAT 740B Dump Trucks
- Terex Pegson Mobile Rock Crusher
- Powerscreen Warrior Mobile Screen Plant
- Fixed Jaw Crushing Plant
- Hyundai HL760-7 Loader
Our Hyundai Loader has onboard scales ensuring you get the exact quantity you want as well as ensuring your trucks or trailers are not overloaded.
