About Us

We provide high quality aggregate products with competitive pricing for clients throughout the state of Missouri from our two locations. Hermann Sand & Gravel employs 10-12 people. We are proud of our sand plant employees and marine services crew members who take pride in their work. Without them we couldn’t grow the business or offer our quality products and services.
