The Texan quarry AJ Brauer, was Materials Marketing’s first acquisition. An established and quality company, AJ Brauer helped to not only expand the available product lines, but to enhance and further architectural capabilities. The factory locations were consolidated, removing the waste of driving slabs back and forth between the quarry and factory. New water filtration systems were put in place to greatly reduce the amount of impurities returning to the aquifer. Reducing the carbon footprint of the facility was a priority after acquiring AJ Brauer. With new systems in place, the quarry and factory are more efficient and eco-friendly.
