Reijo Wuorio, the Managing Director of Konevuori Oy says that there are three major reasons behind the success story of this quarry and the recycling of leftover stone. First of all, location, location, location. Being situated so close to the capital as well as other relevant cities, the market for gravel is much higher than anywhere else in Finland. From the Aurora quarry 200.000 tons of gravel is transported to closeby places every year. Secondly, Wuorio states, during production it is of utmost importance to separate stone from other possible leftover materials. Otherwise the stone becomes non-utilizable. Finally Wuorio wishes to remind that this process hasn’t been perfected overnight. It has required time and effort, but it certainly seems they’ve paid off!
