Halyps Quarry
Halyps Quarry is the largest quarry for inert materials in Greece with a production capacity of up to 10,000,000 tons a year and a great diversity of products for use in concrete, tarmac, cement, lime, harbour works and other civil engineer works.
The quarry operates in a 1,300,000m2 stretch of land, having two production units for inert materials, fully automated with an hourly production of 3,000t/h and 20 silos for the loading of the final products.
A dust-separation system with bag filters has been installed in both factories since the year 2000, the operation of which is monitored by scientists specialized in environmental issues, along with an automatic water spraying/showering system.
All access roads, including the square for the loading of inert materials, are paved with concrete and a water-carrying vehicle is used, the combination of which results in the reduction of dust emission on the way in and in the loading area of ready-mix products.
In the area of the factory there are four weighbridges for the clients’ quick service, along with an automatic truck washer for the reduction of dust emission during their exit from the quarry.
The working hours of the sales department are from 400 – 2000 every day with the possibility of extending them in order to cover the market’s needs.
Finally, the high quality of products, the technical support by highly taught Engineers in combination with the organization of the sales, the strategic position of the quarry, the fast access roads, are all fundamental elements for our clients’ service and full satisfaction.

Halyps Quarry is in the Keramideza Position, Municipality of Mandra and is 5km from it and 33km from the centre of Athens, excavating aggregates. Aggregates are rated materials of mineral or industrial origin used either with a binding agent  (for the production of filler, concrete, asphalt mixtures, etc.) or individually (ballast of railway tracks, drainers, seepage of cleaning filters, shielding rocks, etc.), in all kinds of engineering works.
Aggregates have no binding properties other than a natural cohesion due to the geometrical classification of their grains and their weight.
Moreover, from a traditional point of view, there is no chemical reaction between aggregates and the binding agent by means of which they are simply retained.
