PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE

Ben Bennett Jr Ltd is a family run business dating back to to the 1920's; with the business being split into two divisions. One being Eastwood Rolling Mill which was established in the 1930's and specialises in the manufacture of mild, carbon and tempered steel; the other being our Grange Mill Quarry in Derbyshire. We specialise in high purity limestone in both lump stone and finely graded powders.

 

Based in Rotherham, the family business was passed down through the generations from Ben Bennett senior to the fourth and current Ben Bennett Jr. Born in 1941 he joined the company in 1958. Today with over 70 employees between the two divisions our business looks set to continue indefinitely.

 

Grange Mill Quarry continues to receive investment in both mobile and fixed plant to secure its future as a major competitor in High Purity Limestone. We operate a modern fleet of dumpers and excavators at the first stage of its production to ensure reliability of the crushing process. We also recently unveiled our new additional mobile crushing and screening units to assist in demands. Both operating plants use modern electrical systems to produce a variety of fine powders and granules to meet customer requirements.

 

We have also recently secured the total freehold ownership of land and stone reserves of its operation, and the current planning consent extends to 2042 for this area.

 

The company continues to conserve its reserves by ensuring the majority of its production is supplied to industrial markets, reducing its reliance on aggregates and high volumes.
