Texas-based Resource Materials, a supplier of sand and aggregates to the local construction industry, invested in a new CDE wash plant for its quarry in Williamson County, TX.
In response to increasing demand for high quality construction materials in the local markets and big Texas cities, Resource Materials partnered with CDE to design and engineer a solution to produce concrete rock and concrete sand from the limestone quarry.
CDE was selected as the partner of choice for the project because of its ability to configure and optimize a sustainable solution aligned to the specific needs of Resource Materials, explains Kevin Collier, Co-Owner of Resource Materials.
“We have longstanding and very positive working relationship with the team at CDE, whose technology and proactive approach to ensuring our quarries are constantly running material at optimum efficiency has always given confidence in our investments.”
“The technology itself is proven, the results have been demonstrated, and our customers expect us to maintain those high standards already set. CDE’s wet processing technology is fundamental to our existing operations and we recognize this partnership as an essential component in our future success, too. It’s an engaging and reassuring process, one that demonstrates that CDE has our best interests in mind and that the final solution is engineered to address our specific needs.”
The plant was unveiled recently as industry representatives and materials processors from across the United States came together for CDE’s first Open House event in the US for over two years.
CDE’s Business Development Director for the Americas, Darren Eastwood, welcomed the return to face-to-face interaction.
Attendees were able to meet with CDE’s technical experts who provided a detailed explanation about each stage of the process and demonstrate how its solution is supporting Resource Materials to process raw limestone feed material to produce four products, including: 1¼+ oversize aggregates; 1¼ - #4 washed #57 stone; 4 - 8 mesh grit; and reliable and consistent C33 concrete sand.
Darren added, “Physically experiencing the process of the plant in live action is important to understand how our technology is different and can provide a valuable solution for customers. We thank all guests who invested their time to attend the Open House and we appreciate our valued customers Resource Materials for enabling CDE to facilitate the event.”
