with the superior performance of decentralization
Summit Materials believes that the best way to generate shareholder value is to combine vertical integration with an interdependent company structure, as it provides increased efficiencies and economies of scale, while empowering operating companies to make local, well informed decisions. Our operating companies are partners with their local communities and this structure capitalizes on their knowledge of the local markets, allowing them to make the best decisions for Summit overall.
Aggregates are the building blocks of our nation’s construction industry. These natural resources are the foundation of products and services that develop our public and private infrastructure. The aggregate materials are sourced from our quarries, and are the key materials in production of asphalt and concrete. We stand behind the process and quality from rock to road.
Cement, when combined with aggregates and water, produces concrete. Cement is the binder that makes concrete durable, weather resistant and adaptable. Our state of the art cement plant and production process enable our companies and our customers to offer superior concrete products.
Asphalt is one of the most common roadway materials used today; approximately 94 percent of our nation's roads are paved with asphalt. It is formed by the combination of aggregates and liquid asphalt. Asphalt is 100 percent renewable and the U.S. alone recycles nearly 60 million tons of asphalt each year.

We partner with our neighbors and our legislators to work responsibly in our environment throughout the extraction process.
