We are delighted to be celebrating our first year in trading this week! We would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for their hard work and to our loyal customer base who have continued to support local business and quality materials.
Following Burcombe Haulage’s acquisition of the business last year, the company has grown both in staff numbers and production of stone and aggregate for trade and private customers. In addition, Callycombe Aggregates team has been praised by The Institute of Quarrying for their enthusiasm, understanding and practical application of key regulations and standards for health and safety.
Callycombe Aggregates featured in last month’s issue of The Institute of Quarrying’s magazine on quarry management and commended the quarry team for their enthusiasm and energy in the article.
Highlighting the importance of knowledge, understanding and practical application of key regulations and standards, the quarrying industry continues to do much to improve health and safety.
The Institute of Quarrying offer an IQ Skills Wheel, which informs and updates on health and safety in the quarrying and extractive industries, which is something Callycombe Aggregates have signed up to.
As the article writes:
Take Burcombe Haulage in Cornwall. A well-established haulage operator, the company acquired Callywith Quarry in Bodmin earlier this year, which now trades as Callycombe Aggregates. Julian Smallshaw is Head of Educational Development at IQ. He explains: “Since its acquisition of Callywith Quarry, Callycombe Aggregates’ leadership team has recognised the need to upskill its people as it takes on new challenges running a quarry operation. Managers Zoe Harris and Gavin Hodges have signed up to our IQ Academy Level 3 Vocational Qualification Certificate in Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) Knowledge.
“As part of Zoe and Gavin’s course, we ran a tutorial at the end of November in Bodmin, which was attended by the whole company. That gives you an idea of the enthusiasm and energy that the management team is investing in its new acquisition. This covered many of the essential elements that are included in the Standards and Professionalism quadrant of the IQ Skills Wheel.”
The Health & Safety tutorial is the first in a series as part of the course. The day addressed a range of health and safety regulations and standards, including Quarry Regulations 1999, health and safety awareness, hazardous substances, lone working, lock-off and incident investigation.
Zoe Harris, Callycombe Aggregates, says: “The Level 3 SHE Knowledge certificate is about equipping people working within the quarrying and mineral extractives sector with the most up-to-date and relevant, fit-for-purpose training in the industry. So, it’s essential learning for our team.”
Callycombe Aggregates require a hard working and reliable individual to join our team cutting rustic slate walling stone, at our quarry in Bodmin.
The role involves handling stone and using a bench saw. Full training will be provided, so no experience necessary but with enthusiasm to learn.
Must be able to work well under pressure as part of a team. Plant experience is advantageous.
This is a full time and permanent position, with the opportunity to progress within the company.
Burcombe Haulage are delighted to announce acquisition of Callywith Quarry in Bodmin and the unveiling of Callycombe Aggregates Ltd.
Callycombe will compliment Burcombe’s construction sector and tippers, providing trade and private customers with quality cut or crushed natural Cornish stone for house building, masonry walling, Cornish hedging, general and decorative aggregate. We are excited for the future and see this as a positive move and benefit to the continued success of both Burcombe and Callywith Quarry.
