Société des Sablières du Cotentin


Based on a deposit of Triassic sand (-250 million years), SABCO extracts and converts a raw material composed of sand, gravel, pebbles and clay. Our activity as sand supplier consists in operating this deposit methodically and efficiently while respecting the environment. Once in our plant, we wash then separate the various granulometries. Thanks to our know-how, we can supply materials of constant quality, irrespective of the variations found in the deposit.

Based on a 100% natural material, we obtain regular products whose quality meets your requirements.
