The Norman Emerson Group was founded in 1945 by Norman Emerson Senior. With over half a century of commercial experience across the island of Ireland the business has developed core competencies in the production and supply of materials and services to the following three market sectors :-
Construction Industry Concrete and Aggregate Supplies
Horticulutal/Sport turf surface solution supplies
Natural Stone decorative Hard Landscaping supplies
Firmly rooted in the water based extraction of Lough Neagh Sands the business evolved to develop extraction of hard rock quarries, gravel pits and the production of ready mixed concrete. A range of sands have been developed from the core sand extraction function to supply a growth market for sports sands used as an important component for playing pitches, golf courses and horse ménages. Later development brought the introduction of a dedicated concrete laying contracts division, a specialised decorative aggregate division focused on the hard landscaping sector and the development of industrialised dried sand for a variety of valued added end uses.
Other business interests include a stationary supply operation.
The business operates globally in terms of international product sourcing and provision of niche sales to export markets.
‘Building on Quality’is very much the focus within the Norman Emerson Group. The company deploys the European Foundation for Quality Management’s Business Excellence Model as a strategic continuous improvement tool in terms of business development. From this framework the business has developed ISO 9001, BS8555 and Investors in People quality processes to deliver an ambitious plan of business growth via product / market diversification, people development and process improvement.
Our vision is to be :-
‘The premier quality supplier of choice for Sand, Concrete, Quarry Aggregate, Decorative Stone and associated products in our chosen markets’.
