About the Industry
The aggregates industry workforce is made up of 118,000 men and women nationwide. Every $1 million in aggregate sales creates 19.5 jobs, and every dollar of industry output returns $1.58 to the economy. California is the second largest mineral producing state in the nation and the mining industry accounts for nearly $3 billion dollars of mineral production annually, with the minerals produced providing the resources needed for the continual development of the state.
The aggregate materials produced at Azusa Rock are essential to maintain our community's infrastructure and economic growth. Vulcan Materials is the industry leader in producing crushed stone, sand, gravel and other construction materials. These materials are the building blocks for our nation's homes, hospitals, schools, churches, bridges, stadiums, dams and other infrastructure projects.
