What we do

River Sands is a family-owned business that manufactures and markets a specialised range of products for the construction, sports turf, water treatment and underground mining industries.

It commenced operations in 1974 as a sand producer and used this raw material to quickly diversify into manufacturing packaged concrete and mortars for the Trade and DIY market segments in the 1980’s.


This pattern of diversification and product development has continued and the business now provides approximately 2000 products under four brands with specific applications for use in architectural Concrete applications, building facades and flooring finishes, underground mining ground support and Civil and Sports Turf throughout Australia.
