In 2007, our company was awarded the “German Sustainability Prize for Gravel and Sand”, which is sponsored jointly by the Institute of Mining Technology at the Aachen Polytechnic (RTWH), by the Stein-Verlag Baden-Baden GmbH publishing house, and by the Federal Association of German Gravel and Sand Companies.
