Rhomberg delivers the highest quality from a single source – including our raw materials, which are sourced from the Hohenems-Unterklien quarry. Our site is situated in a central location in the northern Rhine Valley, near the consumer centres to which the raw materials are delivered. In-between the loading and unloading of the trucks, the materials are transported roughly eight to ten kilometres; one-third of the Austrian average.
Good things are just a stone's throw away
In addition to traditional quarrying, materials and raw materials are delivered, reprocessed and recycled. Our recycling rate is approx. 25%. This is also profitable for our customers, who receive high-quality, native products at an affordable price.
For our Swiss customers, customs clearance is performed straight away using scales, i.e. conveniently and without waiting times at the Schmitter in Lustenau border crossing.

Sustainability in quarrying
We all have a responsibility to protect and conserve our environment, and at Rhomberg we take this responsibility very seriously.
A sophisticated material cycle
Thanks to our own quarry and resource centre, today we obtain up to 50 percent of our construction materials from recycled secondary raw materials.
Production for the region
We deliver 75 percent of our products to our customers in the Lower Rhine Valley. This means a short transport distance of 9 kilometres on average, saving CO2 and, above all, time.
Auf die Schiene gebracht
Seit der Eröffnung im Jahre 2009 transportieren wir durchschnittlich 125.000 Tonnen Material pro Jahr über das Anschlussgleis.
Mittels Bahn wurde der gesamte Abtrag von großen Baustellen wie dem Bahnhof Feldkirch, Dornbirn sowie des Arlbergtunnels in den Steinbruch transportiert, aufbereitet und dem Markt wieder zugeführt.
