Neilsens Quality Gravels was established by the Neilsen family in 1978 at its Sand and River Gravel site adjacent to the South Pine River to produce sand and aggregates primarily for the concrete industry, and from those small beginnings, has developed to become the largest Independent supplier of concrete aggregates and quarry materials in SE Qld.
The Brendale resource has enabled Neilsens to build a reputation on the supply of natural sand and river aggregates, and is now looking to continue this with the approval to extract from adjacent reserves fully owned by the company.
Neilsens commenced operations at the Cryna (Beaudesert) Hard Rock Basalt Quarry in 1997 to meet the increasing demand for concrete aggregates, and to enable entrance into the Road Base and Drainage Aggregate markets. With the initial resource reaching completion, the company secured approval for additional reserves in late 2012, which will enable Neilsens to continue to supply the
market for at least another 30 years.
Neilsens Concrete Reinforcement
In 2011 Neilsens Concrete Pty Ltd expanded to include the supply and delivery of concrete reinforcements to our customers.
The expansion into reinforcements gives us the ability to service the needs of the home handy man or small business with a one stop shop for your basic concreting needs.
Neilsens Quality Gravels – Bromelton Quarry
A key focus of the Neilsen Group has always been to supply a high quality product while keeping focus on environmentally friendly solutions. With the implementation of the Barmac crusher, there was an increase in crusher dust, a ‘by-product’ of the normal crushing and screening process. Crusher dust can be used as a natural sand substitute if the fines (<75micron) are extracted. Investigations by Neilsens management resulted in the installation of the Air Sweep Plant. More…….
Neilsens Concrete Stapylton
The Neilsen Group opened its fourth pre-mixed concrete batching plant at Stapylton. The first of its kind in Australia and second in the world which incorporates technology that allows us to recycle 100% of run off from wash out and plant cleaning, industry fastest and dust free loading as well as improved concrete performance and slump control. Stapylton concrete plant will be servicing south-east Brisbane down to Southport.
Neilsens Concrete Carole Park
The Neilsen Group has adopted an environmentally friendly approach to returned concrete with our Jade Air reclaimer. The Jade Air reclaims sand and aggregates ready for re-use in fresh concrete while eliminating grey water and preventing yard run off to storm water drains. This replaces the need for traditional washout, cleaning and dumping to landfill practices.
If you want to place your concrete with the best results look no further than the newly released Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) Smart Concreting App.
The app utilises local weather and atmospheric data to calculate evaporation rates. This provides simple guidelines on concrete cracking conditions to site personnel on construction projects to help prevent defects and encourage best practice.
Drawing on multiple data sources it provides:
- real time weather guidance on the potential for plastic shrinkage cracking
- weather information allowing construction decisions to be made up to a week in advance
- background information on critical factors affecting concrete cracking including temperature, wind speed and relative humidity
- knowledge on how to prevent costly mistakes and remedial work
- easy access to valuable and relevant CCAA information on best practice guidelines for concrete placement
- knowledge about concrete, how it behaves and industry best practice
The app can be downloaded FREE from the iTunes and Google Play stores on your smart phone by searching for smart concreting or CCAA.
