Ross Adarnato started managing the Company in 1999 with his brother Frank. Since then the Company has become a thriving supplier of sand and gravel to the Shepparton area and beyond.

My father Sam and Uncle George Adarnato started the Company in the late sixties. They were not involved in sand supply .They supplied farm and vegetable products to the local area said Ross.

We invested in our first screening plant in 2004. This was a Finlay 312 on wheels. Our business expanded at a rapid pace supplying sand for the civil/building needs in the area. By 2011  the demands were such that the 312 could no longer cope. We needed a bigger machine that could take on larger loads with larger loader and excavators. After  discussions with Han Alam of Finlay, we purchased a Terex Finlay 683 , a two deck machine on tracks.

We were thereafter in full gear and could meet the demands. We have found the machines to be reliable and  low maintenance. The back up from Finlay with spares, service is excellent and the machines keep working and working.

The machines are in excellent condition in all respects, this is due to the way service maintenance is carried out by Adarnato Sands says Han Alam of Finlay.

Adarnato Sands have a fleet of trucks, Cat Wheel Loaders/Excavators to support their business. They continue to grow and supply sand to the Shepparton area and into some area of NSW.
