Martin Marietta is a large US-based Construction and Aggregates company, with more than 400 locations across America, Canada and the Caribbean. Specialising in the supply of aggregates and heavy building materials for roadbuilding and residential infrastructure, downtime poses a significant risk to their wide-reaching supply chain.
