Quality aggregates (Benor) are delivered both by boat and by truck, throughout Belgium, The Netherlands and
NHM's own transport organization guarantees quality "Just in Time" delivery.

NHM Bruges is an important producer of marine aggregates (Benor) Due to its location on the banks of the Baudouin Canal and thanks to its proximity to the E40 motorway, NHM Bruges is the ideal starting point for inland deliveries.
NHM Bruges has a site of 3 Ha, a 7,5m deep loading quay, a screening plant of 200t/h and a laboratory where
continuous quality controls are carried out.
NHM Bruges is the exclusive distributor of Norwegian Gneiss and Norwegian Sandstone.
This granite is extracted from the Oster Pukk Sand and N.S.E. quarries, members of Group De Cloedt, and is
mainly used in the production of asphalt.
In an area covering more than 3 Ha, with 2 unloading quay facilities, one for sand and one for gravel, NHM is permanently based in Ostend. Its screening plant, the most efficient and environmentally-friendly in Belgium, allows the screening of 300 tons of marine ballast per hour. The materials, which have been sorted, washed, crushed and screened, are free of all impurities, thanks to the water separator.
The quality of Benor is therefore ensured, as its optimal transport, either by river or by road with the help of its subsidiaries" DC Dredging" and "TransBlueline" , or by sea using cargo ships, thus enabling us to successfully service all customers in Northern Europe. The railway is also adjacent to NHM's facilities.
NHM is supplied by its own marine concessions (in Belgium, Holland and Denmark ...), as well as by those of its preferred suppliers (in England and France).
NHM also has the exclusive right to sell recycled aggregates processed by the Ostend-based recycling company « RECYC WEST bvba ». Recycled aggregates have long been used in road construction. The Copro label guarantees the consistent quality of those aggregates.
