About Us


Tri City Materials was started by two brothers, Ron and Rick Esbaugh, in November, 2005.  theboys copy

It was conformed by a simple concept to supply quality aggregate materials to its sister company, Tri City Readymix. Tri City Materials bought the assets of A-1 Aggregates. A-1 was primarily a road builders gravel supply company. Tri City has built on this business and now supplies washed sand and stone for concrete and asphalt plants, road building materials and the commercial, ICI, landscape and agricultural sectors.

In March 2007, we purchased the assets of Ramseyer Trucking. With this purchase came the rights to four pits and Ramseyer’s key employees. Mike Black, our Operation’s Manager, oversees all of the pits, employees, and custom crushing and screening. We now have pit locations in Kitchener, Petersburg North, Petersburg South, New Dundee and Guelph, all serving the greater Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph areas.

In December 2017, Tri City joined forces with Miller Paving Limited.  Miller purchased all properties and equipment of Tri City Materials and Tri City Readymix.  Tri City is now better positioned to compete in the construction and material supply industry in the Kitchener Waterloo marketplaces.  We are now able to pursue a wider array of opportunities as projects become more complex and demanding.

We also are big believers in recycling. We take in excess concrete and asphalt from various sites, recycle it to a reusable finished product such as Recycled Asphalt, Type II Road Base, and Recycled A Gravel. This is not only good for the environment, but keeps our valuable virgin material in reserves.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding our products and services. We look forward to doing business with you!
