construction aggregate jobs


“In the last 20 years, the consumption of aggregates has dramatically increased. Today it requires an estimated 38,000 tons of aggregates to create a mile of a lane for an interstate highway. When it comes to the construction of homes, a home today requires roughly 400 tons of aggregate. Moreover, a hospital or school of a decent size would require approximately 15,000 tons of aggregates.” – The Important Role of Aggregate in Construction- Constructors Inc.

Sand, gravel, and industrial minerals play essential roles in every form of construction, from transportation infrastructure to the new house next door. From the septic tank to the chimney in residential construction, from the tunnel to the skyscraper in civil construction, aggregates are always the foundation. 

Raising the Grade in the Aggregate Sector

With that kind of relentless demand to fulfill, industry-leading companies in the aggregate sector are raising the pay grade when it comes to recruiting and retaining their workforce professionals with competitive benefits and lucrative salaries, many significantly above the $100,000 range.

Let’s take a closer look at these career-enhancing opportunities and define exactly what we mean by “salaries significantly above $100,000”. With or without a Bachelor’s Degree, the aggregates industry wants you.
