Raw Materials For Construction & Landscaping
Welcome to CEMEX Aggregates - In the UK crushed rock, sand and gravel are used to create value-added products like lime, asphalt, concrete and mortar which are essential for building and improving our homes, schools, hospitals, factories, water and sewerage systems, railways and roads.
