What is the Institute of Quarrying?

Our role is to promote the positive impact of the industry, the career opportunities available and support professionals working within it.

The Institute of Quarrying was founded over 100 years ago by four people with a vision for the mineral products industry.

They wanted the industry to come together to raise standards, share knowledge and be recognised as highly skilled professionals which are the principles that guide the Institute of Quarrying today.
