State of the art Aggregate Plant

Pattison’s newly installed Cone Crusher and production plant is state-of-the-art, producing some of the highest quality Ordovician Dolomitic Limestone Aggregates.

Material is separated into various required sizes without inducing fractures, while yielding a refined individual rack shape that is the most desirable for tight compaction and stability. Pattison’s new aggregate plant produces Aggregates of exceptional quality.

Logistics second to none

Pattison recently completed its Rail Spur project, extending multiple rail lines directly into our new state-of-the-art aggregate production plant!.

Pattison’s advanced direct to rail loadout system coupled with the Pattison rail spur allows aggregate products to be loaded directly from the production plant on to enclosed rail ore cars for delivery. Eliminating excess handling saves costs, and insures a higher quality product.
