BLA Member ranked in Sunday Times
international track 200 list

The Sunday Times International Track 200 is a league table of Britain’s private companies with the fastest growing export sales. As a result of an almost 30% increase in overseas sales of Dolomitic lime and Dolomite refractory material in the past 2 years, Steetley Dolomite Ltd has been ranked 141st in this list.

Interestingly, almost half of Steetley Dolomite’s sales now come from overseas. By adding value to nearly 1 million tonnes per year of materials quarried in the UK, Steetley Dolomite Ltd is not only supporting both local and national economies but its products have now gained global importance to essential industries.
