These include grouts and floor levellers.The company’s sand division distributes a variety of blasting and filter sands. Besides supplying the Burnaby plant with dry aggregates, the Aldergrove plant produces some of the company’s sand products such as engine sand and forestry grit.The golf course and sports field division produces and distributes bunker sands, fairway mixes and greens mixes.
