We own or lease aggregates and industrial mineral reserves in a number of states. The aggregates are used in the construction of most of the country’s infrastructure, including residential, commercial, and public works projects. The minerals are mined and processed for a range of industrial and commercial applications.

Quick Facts

  • Top 25 aggregates producer in U.S.
  • Controlled 400 million tons at 12/31/16
  • VantaCore operations/revenues in 7 states

NRP reinforced our strategy to diversify the partnership’s assets with the 2014 acquisition of VantaCore, one of the top 25 aggregates producers in the United States. VantaCore was formed in 2006 to acquire profitable, well-managed, and competitively advantaged mid-sized aggregates companies. It operates four hard rock quarries, one under ground limestone mine, six sand and gravel plants, two asphalt plants, and two marine terminals. At December 31, 2016, VantaCore controlled approximately 400 million tons of estimated aggregate reserves.

With VantaCore as a wholly owned subsidiary, NRP has significantly enhanced our platform for growth in the construction aggregates business. Beyond that, it further strengthens our footprint in the Marcellus and Utica shales, where VantaCore supplies limestone and base material to oil and gas companies operating in the region.

VantaCore operates in three regions of the country:
