The Mineral Products Association website includes information on the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, agricultural lime, industrial lime, mortar and silica sand industries. Our members provide essential materials and sustainable solutions from production to consumption.

Through the web, we aim to give you a wider understanding of our fascinating and vital industry. The Mineral Products Association (MPA) is the trade association for companies involved in supplying crushed rock and sand and gravel from land-based and marine sources (marine aggregates), agricultural lime and industrial lime, asphalt, cement, concrete, including ready-mixed concrete, dimension stone, mortar, silica sand, slag, recycled aggregates and construction and quarry plant.

You will also find key information on sustainable development, health & safety, employment, careers in quarrying, competence, community relations, resource conservation, environmental protection, quarry restoration, quarry plant, sustainable products, stakeholder accountability, carbon management, the quarrying industry, transport, heritage, biodiversity and geodiversity.

With the addition of The British Precast Concrete Federation (BPCF) and the British Association of Reinforcement (BAR), MPA has a growing membership of 480 companies and is the sectoral voice for mineral products. MPA membership is made up of the vast majority of independent SME quarrying companies throughout the UK, as well as the 9 majors international and global companies. It covers 100% of GB cement production, 90% of aggregates production, 95% of asphalt and over 70% of ready-mixed concrete and precast concrete production.

Visit our specific careers area or our youth zone, which includes the Virtual Quarry website, or browse through a variety of video resources in the Cinema area, including our Cycle Safe and Stay Safe...Stay Out of Quarries campaigns.

Did you know, for example, that each person in the UK uses four tonnes of aggregates each year? Or that the mineral products industry has planted over two million trees in recent years?
