The AQA is the industry body representing construction material companies which produce an estimated 45 million tonnes of aggregate and quarried materials consumed in New Zealand each year. That’s about 10 tonnes – or a reasonable truckload for every New Zealander, young and old.
Our members produce the aggregates which form the foundation (and many walls) of almost every building across our nation as well most of our roads. Quarries also supply allied raw materials such as limestone, which help keep our farms productive.
The AQA represents aggregate suppliers on all manner of industry, government, health and safety, technical and other issues.
