About Inish Pebble Co
Inish Pebble Company Limited is a family run business for the past 20 years. It started in 1995 as a small supplier of decorative beach pebble and sands for the construction industry. Our raw materials are sourced from an area which was reclaimed from the sea hundreds of years ago and so the sand and gravel are extracted from a marine deposit and have been washed in the ocean over thousands of years. These conditions make this a naturally formed and extremely clean material. The mineral deposit has a high silica content, sub angular to sub rounded grain of low porosity. We are fortunate to have a unique, much sought after material which is not readily available elsewhere in Ireland.
As the company expands we have been constantly researching new markets for our products. We have found many different applications for our minerals as they have a exceptionally high silica content and desirable chemical composition. In 2011 we upgraded all our processing plant to achieve the required specific grades, wet and dry to supply these specialised markets. We now have the ability to produce very specific grades of material to meet the demand for; equestrian, construction, sports, filtration, industrial and decorative markets. We are now the main suppliers of specialized silica sands in Ireland.
