Vulcan Materials Company is the nations largest producer of construction aggregatesprimarily crushed stone, sand and graveland a major producer of aggregates-based construction materials including asphalt and ready-mixed concrete. Our coast-to-coast footprint and strategic distribution network align with and serve the nations growth centers. We are headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.
Vulcan has 344 sites that produce construction aggregates, and over 100 facilities that produce asphalt and/or concrete, which also consume aggregates. All of these are located in the U.S. except for our large quarry and marine terminal on Mexicos Yucat in Peninsula. The products from this facility are primarily exported by ship to the U.S. Gulf Coast, where quality stone cannot be mined locally.
What we produce is used in nearly all forms of construction. In particular, large quantities of aggregates are used to build and repair valuable infrastructure such as roads, bridges, waterworks and ports, and to construct buildings both residential and nonresidential, such as manufacturing facilities, office buildings, schools, hospitals and churches.
