In 1990, the limestone quarry “les Nutons” was purchased by Dranaco N.V.. This quarry is located in Spontin, 3 km from the entrance and exit of the E411 motorway. In the past, lime was produced in this quarry. By the way, the old lime kilns are still present in the quarry and now form a protected place for local wildlife.
Since January 2015, this quarry has been producing water building blocks that are used for dike reinforcements in Belgium and the Netherlands. Due to its good geographical location, the stones leave from “Les Nutons” both by truck and by barge to their final destination.
In the near future the extraction of the blue stone (petit granit) will be started. Spontin stone is known for its excellent quality.
