AURORA CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS (ACM)

ACM HISTORY

Formed in 2008 and commencing trade in January 2009, ACM has achieved solid and sustained growth to become a significant supplier of Crush Rock and Concrete to the market in Melbournes North.

ACM was formed on the ideal of becoming the most sustainable construction material supplier in Australia and possibly the world.

The tagline on the ACM logo "Redefining Green" was selected to present this ideal to the market place.
Since commencement, ACM has lived up to this tagline by embedding sustainable practices at all possible levels.
Some of the measures put in place by ACM include:

  • All vehicles run using 20% biodiesel fuel.
  • All stormwater run off from the site up to 100 year flow levels is captured and used in the concrete and crushing plants.
  • All stone used in the manufacture of crushed rock and concrete aggregates is recycled from subdivision works.
  • All concrete slurry waste is captured and reused.
  • All trucks leaving our site go through a truck wheel wash facility.
  • Dust suppression systems are installed throughout the plant and along the roadways in the plant.
  • Aurora manufactures E-Cretetm, a replacement for conventional concrete that delivers up to 80% less carbon output.

ACM is continuing to seek innovative and ground breaking technologies to even further enhance the sustainability of its operations.
