North American Aggregates is a leading supplier of aggregates for the construction, infrastructure, transportation and redevelopment of industries in the tri-state area.
Through Week’s wholly owned subsidiary North American Aggregates, we are a leading supplier of aggregates for the construction, infrastructure, transportation and redevelopment of industries in the tri-state area. Our Perth Amboy, New Jersey facility is centrally located, with immediate access to major transportation networks both on land and water. Our Aggregates team is equipped to offer beneficial reuse and large transportation by water, and thus provides environmentally sound solutions including the reduction of transit emissions by reducing road conveyance in the transportation of aggregate materials.
Our process begins with our dredge, Eleanor, mining and sizing virgin source aggregates from the Ambrose Federal Navigation Channel. The aggregate is then is transported to our Perth Amboy facility to be processed at our new state-of-the-art plant. The clean sands are drawn into the process stream and conveyed to specialized heavy duty wet screens, blending and mixing stations, rinsing areas and finally stockpiled over two reclaim tunnels and finished product load out areas. Geographic benefits of our location include immediate access to major transportation networks both on land and water and our environmentally friendly process avoids the erosion and destruction of habitat caused by traditional sand mining.
