Located on the Boston Road (R617) of KwaZulu-Natal, independent dolerite quarry Midmar Crushers has been in operation for over two decades. It is one of only two dolerite quarries in the area.
Dolerite is known to produce good quality aggregates.
It is a very hard, tough rock that is used to make high quality hardened concrete and durable road surfaces.
Midmar Crushers prides itself in providing real solutions to clients. This is embedded in the business philosophy which has resulted in the winning of consecutive awards for best independent quarry in South Africa from the Aggregate and Sand Producers Association of Southern Africa (ASPASA).
The drive to produce quality aggregates is seen in the testing of it, as both internal and external laboratories are used. This testing is done to ensure that the material meets Committee of Land Transport Officials (COLTO) specifications. These are specifications for the exclusive use by State Road Authorities for Road and Bridge Works.
