Welcome to the British Aggregates Association

 

The Association for Independent Quarry Operators

The British Aggregates Association was formed in 1999 and is now firmly established as the voice of the UK’s independent SME quarry operators. The BAA is run on a daily basis by people experienced in all aspects of the minerals industry. The association provides essential support and advice in all health and safety, planning, technical and regulatory issues; whilst ensuring that the voice of the independent sector 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 in government.


The UK Quarry Industry

The UK Quarry Industry is one of the oldest in the world and 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 £92 billion construction sector which in 2014 provided over 2 million jobs and represented 6.4% 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 skilled in countering adverse comment from those who neither understand nor appreciate the nature of our work.
