The top four sand and gravel producers remain unchanged from a year ago, with CRH Americas Materials (No. 1) retaining the top spot. CRH is once again followed, in order, by Vulcan Materials Co. (No. 2), Martin Marietta (No. 3) and Knife River Corp. (No. 4). Summit Materials (No. 5) gains the most ground, rising from its ninth position of a year ago. Cemex USA (No. 6), Teichert (No. 9) and Argos USA (No. 10) gain ground, as well. Holcim (No. 7), meanwhile, slips out of the top five, and Heidelberg Materials (No. 8) loses two spots. Also, USGS says the top 10 producers accounted for 27 percent (254 million metric tons) of the nation’s sand and gravel in 2022.
