Caribbean sand: Company in the Dominican Republic uses crushing technology from BHS-Sonthofen

February 2021
Even in countries with large quantities of naturally occurring sand, manufacturing high-quality building materials is a challenge. Because this sand does not always have the properties required of a building material. On top of that, Dominican building materials manufacturer Calizamar, S.A. has set itself the target of meeting its customers’ demand for flawless building materials. The demand for fine sand to manufacture dry mortar and concrete in particular has risen continuously in recent times. Calizamar is using crushing technology from BHS-Sonthofen to fulfil its promise.
