R.W. Sidley, Inc. was established in 1933, as a mining and manufacturing company. Since then we have continued to build our company through the development of high-quality products derived from our original core products of silica sand and bank gravel. As a full-service supplier R.W. Sidley, Inc. provides a broad range of construction solutions for today's building industry. We manufacture and supply bulk aggregates, industrial minerals, ready-mix concrete, masonry block products, structural and architectural precast components, and building supplies.
We believe that continuous improvement is the key to growth.
To accomplish this we are continuously investing in screening, batching, manufacturing and recycling equipment. Our internal testing laboratory is staffed by certified technicians that maintain affiliations with leading industry organizations. Together this ensures that we can supply you with the products, services and information that will make your projects successful.
In 2012, R.W. Sidley, Inc. made a major investment to upgrade to a state-of-the-art screening process and storage facility. This allowed us to meet custom tolerances and specifications. Packaging is available in 50 lb. bags, 3,000 lb. super sacks, 4,000 lb. super sacks or bulk quantities. We produce the highest quality filter media virtually free of deleterious materials. Our processed silica sands and gravels are from our Thompson mine part of the Sharon conglomerate formation. All silica filter sands and gravels are washed, dried and screened at the Thompson plant and meet AWWA B-100 standards for granular filter media and NSF-61 requirements for drinking water components.
Our two limestone docks, located on the shores of Lake Erie in Grand River and Ashtabula, Ohio, receive limestone via self-unloading lake vessels. These docks allow for convenient access to limestone materials for manufacturers and construction sites.
We are the manufacturers of PRO/ANGLE Bunker Sand® the Original 100% Angular Bunker Sand created through a specialized crushing and grinding process that fractures silica quartz pebbles into angular particles creating the most playable, weather resistant bunker sand in North America.
Our high-quality silica sands and gravels meet the specifications for filter media, industrial minerals, proppants, sports aggregates and construction.
