Gravel and broken stone are indispensable materials for the construction industry. Our range of services in this area includes not only producing different grit sizes for building concrete structures, roads and gardens, but also supplying gravel-based products using loading cranes and clamshell grabs and in containers and big bags. Felbermayr currently extracts these natural, raw materials from several sites. A direct link to the rail network, amongst other things, ensures that the material is extremely readily available. This also helps effectively reduce any harm done to the environment.
Even before extraction begins, special attention is paid to the environmental impact. Existing tree cover is transplanted to a new location, and moving the soil protects the flora and fauna of the area. After extraction, gravel pits and quarries are painstakingly revegetated. In 1998, Felbermayr was honoured by receiving the award for environmental protection from the federal state of Upper Austria, awarded for the company's voluntary commitment to preserving nature.
Ensuring that any materials which cannot be sent for recycling are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way is of the utmost importance. Our construction waste landfill site accepts waste such as asphalt, fibre-cement materials and concrete, as well as excavated earth and soil, and even rubble in general.
Compliance with the most stringent environmental standards is guaranteed by ongoing checks and inspections – both by us and by official authorities.
The staff working in our forestry service possess consummate manual skills and in-depth knowledge of issues relating to safety. Using resources in a responsible and thoughtful way is also a top priority for them when completing their work.
