NEILSEN’S QUALITY GRAVELS
Sands (Natural, Manufactured and Crusher Dust)
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 this reputation is set to continue with the approval in March 2017 to extract from adjacent reserves fully owned by the company in Bald Hills, immediately east of the Brendale site.
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.
The demand for high quality basalt aggregates and Road Base materials resulted in Neilsens securing a lease to develop a site at Bromelton (Beaudesert). Operations commenced in mid 2008, and enabled Neilsens to supply high quality concrete aggregates to numerous projects including the Airport Link and Legacy Way Tunnels, in addition to Road Bases to numerous road construction projects.
