NPA Construction Students from Fife College visit Lomond Quarry.
Tuesday, July 28th, 2015
Lomond Quarry has recently played host to a party of . The visit was suggested by Mr Ron Page who is one of the Lecturers in Construction Crafts at the college. Mr Page places great importance in showing the students how a successful local business operates in the context of actual day to day operational environment which can be far more vivid than trying to portray production processes from a college classroom.
Andrew Forgan, Joint Managing Director commented after the visit it was a useful exercise to illustrate to the students just how much investment, knowledge and expertise is required into producing something as simple in appearance as Concrete Sand.
Lomond Quarry is a very unique deposit with the presence of not only sand and gravel minerals but also dolerite rock. These good quality raw materials coupled with a state of the art crushing, washing and processing plant gives a high quality finished product that suits many construction markets.
