We then accompanied Martin to visit Declan McStravick, Works Manager at Acheson + Glover’s (AG) head office at Crievehill Quarry, Fivemiletown, Co. Tyrone to look at one of their latest bespoke wash plant installations. Declan explained “We manufacture all types of concrete products across multiple sites in Northern Ireland, and this site is our head office where we have a working quarry and sand pit, and it’s from here we supply all the aggregates to the rest of the AG group. We have a limestone deposit here with primary, secondary, and tertiary crushing and screening and we also have a deposit which is fairly contaminated with clay and silt.
