Our History

Ethier Sand & Gravel Limited has been in the aggregate industry serving Sudbury, Ontario and the surrounding area for over 80 years. Mr. Alfa Ethier founder of Ethier Sand & Gravel Limited opened the company’s first aggregate source from a gravel pit located behind our main office at 2589 Ida Street in Sudbury.
In the beginning, our company consisted of one truck, several good shovels and a few strong backs. As modern mechanization approached, the company grew with it.
Ethier Sand & Gravel Limited was incorporated in 1968 and began to grow rapidly along with the industry. New gravel deposits were found, land purchased and quarry permits were established to ensure sufficient future supply.

Land Reclamation

As an active aggregate producer in Ontario, we rehabilitate our quarries and gravel pits in a progressive manner as we mine the area. We rehabilitate the depleted lands into parklands, farmland or natural wildlife habitats. Our long-term goals with regard to the rehabilitation of our properties will continue to focus on natural wildlife habitats.
