Beginning in January 2023, Lehigh Hanson and the majority of our affiliated North American brands will be transitioning to unify under one brand: Heidelberg Materials. Hanson Aggregates is now in the process of rebranding. 

As we transition to Heidelberg Materials, our focus continues to be on what we do best—heavy building materials—and delivering a premier customer experience. By joining forces across North America, we will be stronger than ever—driving change and transforming our industry.

Hanson Aggregates is one of the largest producers of crushed stone, sand and gravel in the U.S. With its robust network of plants and ability to transport materials by water and rail, Hanson Aggregates has the capability to supply construction projects in major markets across the country. Hanson supplies aggregates for a variety of uses. While the majority of our materials are used for the production of ready mixed concrete and asphalt, our aggregates are also used for base material, filter stone, drainage and erosion control, landscaping, railroad ballast and backfill.


Hanson Trust was formed in 1964 by James Hanson and Gordon White. It rapidly grew by acquisition and became a multinational concern with interests in chemicals, construction, energy, tobacco and other industries. Over the years, Hanson shifted its focus to construction materials and sold its non-core business. By 2006, Hanson PLC had become the world’s largest producer of aggregates. HeidelbergCement acquired Hanson in 2007 and integrated its North American operations with the Lehigh Cement Company. The Lehigh and Hanson business units in North America are collectively known as Lehigh Hanson, Inc.
