Quarry in Al Houceima, Morocco starts operation
In September 2007 our new dolomite quarry Medstone Sarl in Al Houceima, Morocco starts its operation. The Thiele Group holds 50% of this joint venture. The company Medstone with a yearly production capacity of 350.000 tons is going to serve the region around Al Houceima with natural stone products for the building and road construction industry.
Before constructing the quarry an environmental study following the regulations of the European Union was made to avoid any negative impact on humans and nature. This quarry does not only offer improvement for the regional infrastructure as all construction sites could purchase their natural stone material at lower cost but offers also employment for more than 15 people.
