A new deal that East End Asphalt Company Limited has signed with a US provider of industrial aggregate, Carver Companies, will positively impact the price, quality, and convenience of aggregate supply available in Bermuda for construction and related industries, according to EEA.

The company said the sole distributor partnership with Carver comes after nearly two years of depressed performance and logistical challenges in the building sector.

And the introduction of this new aggregate source means that Bermuda will have a consistent, regulated supply of materials that can meet the technical engineering specifications of anticipated projects. The materials are a critical component in concrete and asphalt manufacturing.

Through the new partnership, Carver will ship superior quality aggregate to the island, sourcing the raw materials from Carver quarries around the world.

Representatives from Carver travelled to Bermuda earlier this month to meet with teams from EEA, and parent company, Polaris.

They also met with EEA clients and other stakeholders from the private and public sectors to discuss critical objectives that could be met.

Travis Gilbert, general manager at EEA said: “We are delighted to welcome the expertise and experience of Carver to our team. This is a watershed moment, not just for East End Asphalt, but for Bermuda’s construction industry, which has been challenged with maintaining a cost-effective supply chain.

“This partnership aims to solve that. As an organisation, we’re excited about playing a small role in Bermuda’s economic recovery.”

Warren Jones, Polaris Holding Company Ltd. CEO said: “This partnership aligns with our organisation’s vision for smart, sustainable growth that will improve our products, support our partners and clients, and strengthen the Polaris portfolio.”

Mr Jones said it reflects the essence of the company mantra: doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason.

Matt Miller, Business Development Manager, Carver Companies, commented: “Together with EEA, Carver Companies looks forward to supplying the citizens of Bermuda with high-quality and cost-effective construction aggregates, through a convenient and consistent supply chain.

“The relationship that we have built with EEA over the past two years is one that is based on trust and communication, which we truly value. Our core values of honesty, integrity, and service align perfectly with EEA’s and we are proud to be partnering with them moving forward.”

EEA runs an asphalt plant in Duck’s Puddle, Hamilton Parish, and is the island’s major supplier of high-quality mixed asphalt and aggregate (granite stone and sand) to municipalities, construction companies, and the Bermuda Government.

EEA also provides paving and sealcoat services to residential, commercial, and government clients.

Carver Companies owns and operates several rock quarries and sand and gravel locations in New York, as well as a granite quarry and a port facility located in Bayside, New Brunswick.
