What does Breedon do?

Breedon operates quarries and plants across the country, supplying aggregates, ready-mix concrete and asphalt, to customers who are building bridges, roads, tower blocks, and many other elements of the built environment around you.

What is quarrying?

In essence, “turning big rocks into little rocks”. In practice, this involves everything from blowing up the rock to crushing and sorting the stone through to delivering our finished products to customers.

There are all sorts of people involved along the way, from our quarry management teams who look after our sites, to our technical teams who ensure the quality is right, to our commercial teams who sell our products and services.

I kickstarted my career as a management apprentice and have been given endless opportunities to learn in a variety of environments. 5 years later, I am now a limestone quarry manager and looking forward to furthering my career with Breedon. - Bradley Richardson, Quarry Manager
