About OTR

OTR is a specialty aggregate quarry located near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Well known for their “Diabase” or more commonly referred to as “Trap Rock”, this aggregate is a very hard, durable material with physical properties far exceeding the most stringent railroad specifications. OTR material is currently used throughout the Great Lakes region by a number of Class I, Regional and Shortline Railroads. Prized for consistently reliable gradations, OTR’s product is depended on for superior thermal and acoustic properties in rock wool insulation; relied on for strength in specialty concrete applications and trusted by the railroad industry for resistance to deterioration in rail ballast. Those in the hot-mix paving industry use our products with confidence to produce skid-resistant, durable, long-lasting road surfaces.

Located on the northern shores of Lake Huron, OTR’s ship loading facilitates access for self-unloading lake freighters and allows for shipping throughout Canada and the United States. Railroad ballast is now shipped to docks located in Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI, Erie, PA, Sarnia, ON and Toledo, OH.
