Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd Betting on BKT and its Tyre Solutions

Brookland Sand Aggregares

Since March 2010, Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd of Saint Austell has sold over 2.3 million tons of sand and aggregates to both local and national customers, showing a significant reach beyond Cornwall. With one-third of its business run outside the county and a substantial sales volume in the London market as well, Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd has established itself as a leader.

BKT: A Reliable Partner for Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd

The company processes “Stent”, a by-product of kaolin mining, into environmental-friendly secondary sand, and aggregates. This commitment is the reflection of their ecological consciousness aimed at preserving natural resources and reducing the environmental impact – principles that find a strong ally in BKT with the manufacturer providing them with tyres that ensure continuous operations and avoid downtime, whilst maximising production efficiency.

Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd‘s approach toward innovation and reliability in its day-to-day operations greatly benefits from its employees’ professional experience and personal stories. One such key figure is Alfie Johns, whose ties to the area and the mining industry go far beyond his current role. “I grew up in this area being born in a village not far from here. Ever since we went to school, working in this area has been among the top employment opportunities,” Alfie says. “It runs in the family: my grandfather, my father, they have all worked in the clay industry, which is now also part of our business.”

This deep sense of belonging and dedication is apparent in the care and attention Alfie puts into his job, especially when it comes to choosing the right equipment to ensure safe and efficient operations. The decision to rely on BKT tyres not only reflects a business choice, but also the pursuit of a family legacy tied to the land and its processing.

Alfie adds another aspect that speaks for the effectiveness of BKT tyres in Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd’s daily operations: “We have relied on BKT for about 6 or 7 years, and now we are testing a three-star tyre on our dump trucks to increase their durability. Their impressive performance over the years has only confirmed my confidence in the brand. We particularly appreciate their wear resistance and versatility under changeable weather conditions – qualities that are essential to our operations. Trust, reliability and cost-effectiveness are the pillars when it comes to choosing our tyres.”

The weather impact on daily operations is a central theme for Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd, which considers weather conditions as one of its main challenges. “On rainy days our sandy roads turn into slippery, heavy paths, while the sun dries them out, leaving behind thick layers of dust,” Alfie explains, emphasising how the company must constantly adapt to these variables. “Despite such challenges, our commitment to sustainability and environmental compliance remains steadfast. We always ensure that our operations are both efficient and environmentally responsible.”

This environmental awareness in combination with the need to operate effectively at all weather conditions, makes the choice of BKT tyres a key component in Brookland’s operational strategy. “My previous positive experience with BKT has reinforced the decision to adopt them here at Brookland as well. Their reliability in a variety of different conditions from heavy rain to drought enables us to proceed with our operations without any interruptions, while keeping our commitment to efficiency and sustainability.”

Brookland Sand & Aggregates Ltd has chosen BKT tyres from the EARTHMAX range to meet the needs of their daily operations. Prominent among the patterns employed are EARTHMAX SR45, EARTHMAX SR50, and EARTHMAXSR49.
