Aggregates for the Lower Mainland and beyond
Lehigh Materials operates two sand and gravel mines, one in Sechelt and one in Chilliwack. In addition to aggregate mines, Lehigh Materials has six strategically located sales depots in the Vancouver, Fraser Valley, and Victoria areas.
Lehigh Materials produces in excess of four million tonnes of aggregates for use in ready-mix concrete, precast concrete production, road and building construction, landscaping, and a variety of specialty aggregates applications.
Lehigh Materials operates a Marine Services division which delivers and offloads aggregates using Lehigh’s barges and conveyor offload barges.
Aggregate Sales Depots
Lehigh Materials sales depots and mines stock a full range of concrete, construction, landscaping, and specialty products.
Sechelt Mine and Depot
Sechelt mines both deltaic and glacial deposits which allows Lehigh Materials to blend pit output to produce finished materials direct from the mine site. Sechelt’s focus is on producing high-quality concrete aggregate and, in addition, a broad range of construction materials and specialty blended sands.
As Sechelt is a marine distribution operation, aggregates are delivered on our barge fleet to Lehigh Hanson Canada depots and ready-mix operations in Vancouver and Victoria. Sechelt can also load vessels for export markets.
