Covia Showcasing Extensive Industrial Sand Footprint at World of Concrete

Customers meeting team to discuss advanced mineral and material solutions, leading technical expertise, and strategic distribution network.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 22, 2019 – Covia announced today it is showcasing its extensive sand footprint and diverse product portfolio at World of Concrete January 22–25. Customers are scheduling meetings to learn about the advanced mineral and material solutions, leading technical expertise, and strategic distribution network.

The Company, created through the merger of Unimin and Fairmount Santrol in June of last year, has nearly 50 plants with more than 50 million tons of annual production capacity. Team members, many of whom are recognized leaders in the industry, believe in the power of long-term partnerships—built on integrity, reliability, and an innovative mindset—to deliver shared success.

Granusil® high-performance construction sand, one of many advanced mineral and material solutions, is a frequent choice for a variety of industrial and contractor-mixed applications. Consistent, uniform grain shape and particle-size distribution have excellent placement, compaction, and mechanical properties in manufactured or site-prepared products.

Broad technical expertise underscores all work for a safer, sustainable portfolio. The R&D team, for example, recently formulated a treated sand that reduces respirable dust by 99%—compared with untreated sand—to enhance worker safety. This is another example of Covia’s pledge to environment, health, and safety (EHS).

Industrial customers can depend on Covia’s strategic, cost-effective distribution network to receive orders on time. The experienced customer service team is well known for ensuring an efficient, uninterrupted flow of orders that are synced up with the network.

“We’re looking forward to introducing our Company at World of Concrete,” said Bryan Aown, vice president of Industrial marketing for Covia. “The spirit of partnership and good corporate citizenship underscores our values and vision, allowing us to collaborate successfully with our customers.”

Covia’s Industrial and Custom Toll Blending teams are located in South Hall booth S10348 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
