Sustainable quarrying: not an option, but a must

Brachot has firmly established itself as an internationally leading player in the field of landscape and surface materials. We continuously invest in the future of our group through a strong focus on innovation, acquisition, knowledge growth and sustainability efforts.

For example, we guarantee an environmentally friendly process, from extraction and production to distribution and recycling. This process includes reallocation plans for mined-out quarries, which if of course an absolute liability.  

Brachot has been crafting values for more than 120 years.

Crafting value for more than 120 years

Not only our materials stand the test of time. Our own company does so as well. For over 120 years now, we have been crafting value with our landscape and surface materials while growing slowly but steadily.
