Ghent Aggregates – the solid combination of a young company and more than 100 years of experience in aggregates

You read it well, young with more than 100 years of experience! 

Ghent Aggregates was founded in 2014 by Jonathan Kesteleyn.

With Ghent Aggregates, Jonathan relies on a solid foundation of five generations of tradition and experience in building materials. In this way, we immediately demonstrate our dynamism.

The activities of the Kesteleyn family have evolved since the end of 1880 from the transport and distribution of building aggregates through the waterways for local markets in the Kortrijk, and after the Interbellum in Ghent to several generations of trade and production of aggregates, marine aggregates, concrete and their sustainable transport by inland navigation and maritime transport in Belgium and Europe.

Today from the port of Ghent, Ghent Aggregates is your importer and specialised supplier of high quality natural and synthetic gravels and pebbles, coloured aggregates and technical minerals serving the concrete industry, the construction of commercial buildings, the road construction and landscape development, sport infrastructure and other applications. 

Our challenge? Offer you a complete range of colour aggregates and minerals in all their forms and colours.

We achieve this through partnerships with dozens of producers and quarries directly in and outside Europe and solid logistics, supported by our site with a large storage and packaging of decorative aggregates in the Port of Ghent. We have more than 16.500m² available for our activities, straight in North Sea Port.
