Not Mincing Words.
We're not trying to pretend to be something we're not - we're not an old, third generation company that has been operating in the Okanagan-Shuswap in since your grandpa moved here.
Nope, we're the new guys.
Founded in 2017, and with operations starting in 2018, we are (as far as we can tell) the newest aggregate and gravel supplier in the Okanagan, Shuswap and Thompson Nicola regions. And that is our advantage. We're working with Zappone Aggregate to do our crushing, lending to us their decades of experience providing high grade crush and aggregate. With their decades of experience combined with being a new company and a willingness to work closely with regulators to ensure we're as environmentally friendly as a gravel and aggregate supplier can be, we are a perfect blend of old and new.
The business is owned by three local businessman, and the operations are managed day-to-day by Bruce Gardiner. Everyone involved are long-time Salmon Arm locals who care deeply about their community - and that belief carries through to the operations of Chum Lake Gravel. We'll make sure you're treated well, and that you're getting the best product for your dollar, all at a fair price. We are Chum Lake Gravel, give us a shout and let's see if we can't help you out.
