We are Westridge
Westridge provides the top-quality aggregate and rock products that are building our homes, our communities and the vital roadways and infrastructure we all rely on.
Founded in 2005, Westridge has earned a reputation as one of the most respected, trustworthy, dedicated and dependable names in the aggregate and rock industry. Today, we provide professional mobile crushing services throughout western Canada, and operate quarry and pit operations throughout the Okanagan Valley, as well as a heavy-haul trucking service.
Westridge began as small five-person crushing operation based in Armstrong, BC. We’ve steadily grown our business, and currently employ an ever growing team of staff and countless local subcontractors.
