Welcome to the British Aggregates Association

The Effective Association for Independent Quarry Operators

The British Aggregates Association is run by people experienced in all aspects of the minerals industry. The association provides essential support to the independent sector and makes sure that their voice is heard at all levels of the UK and EU administrations. In addition to receiving highly skilled support, BAA members benefit from direct access to top decision makers and regulatory authorities.

The BAA is now the recognised voice of independent quarry operators.

The UK Quarry Industry

The UK Quarry Industry is one of the oldest in the country and is an integral part of our industrial heritage. The industry extracts around 200 million tonnes of material each year to provide the essential raw materials for the nation’s infrastructure. Whether it is housing, roads, schools or hospitals aggregates play an essential part.

We provide tens of thousands of jobs; we provide the raw materials for the £50 billion construction sector which in turn accounts for 20% of UK manufacturing or 4% of GDP.

The BAA strongly supports local aggregate production to cut down on road miles and to provide local employment. We are proud of our industry and well used to facing down its detractors.
