Boral announces Booyal Quarries acquisition

Construction materials company, Boral, has acquired Booyal Quarries in Queensland.

The strategic acquisition will provide security of supply to Boral’s Wide Bay-Burnett customers and integrated network, including asphalt and concrete plants at Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and Maryborough.

It will also see the continued employment of skilled workers at Booyal as they transfer to Boral.

Boral Executive General Manager, Concrete & Quarries North, Paul Noakes, said the acquisition will provide the company with a competitively strong quarry position to meet the infrastructure and development needs of the rapidly growing region.

“The strategic acquisition of Booyal Quarries in Queensland will underpin Boral’s ongoing commitment to servicing to the high-growth Wide Bay region,” he said.

“Booyal Quarries will play a crucial role in providing quarry materials to Boral’s local downstream asphalt and concrete operations to supply construction materials for the region’s robust infrastructure and development pipeline.

“Importantly, we look forward to welcoming Booyal Quarries’ staff who will continue their employment as part of the Boral team.”

The 75-hectare hard rock quarry is located 60km southwest of Bundaberg in the Wide Bay-Burnett region.

Noakes said Booyal Quarries is a high-quality and well-established business in the region which, with significant quarry rock reserves, provides security of supply to Boral’s local operations.

“The hard rock quarry currently supplies a full range of products including Transport and Main Roads certified aggregates and road bases,” he said.

Booyal Quarries’ employees were welcomed to the Boral team with activities on site, including a BBQ breakfast hosted by the company and a visit from Noakes and Boral Executive General Manager, People and Culture, Sam Toppenberg.
