Aggregates Marketing has secured a CAN$1,500,000 order to supply aggregates for an unnamed major industrial operator in the regional municipality of Wood Buffalo in northern Alberta.
Aggregates Marketing, a subsidiary of Athabasca Minerals, is an emerging technology company focused on achieving enhanced price/delivery solutions in mapping customer requirements (orders) to aggregates suppliers and transportation companies with greater speed and efficiency.
Robert Beekhuizen, chief executive offer, says: “In today’s economy, the goal of Aggregates Marketing is to leverage technology and keep pace with progressive trends in e-commerce to creatively disrupt a widely pervasive bulk construction materials market with improved connectivity, supplier utilization, and pricing. Aggregates Marketing’s growing database, and iterative, algorithmic approach is increasing optionality and deriving further value enhancements that can be passed on to customers. We are very excited about the future growth potential of this division within the Corporation’s portfolio, and the geographic extent to which Aggregates Marketing can cater, both nationally and internationally, as this midstream business expands.”
