Through our national in-basin strategy, we are sourcing frac sand closer to the end user to drive down costs for our customers. Our logistically advantaged Atascosa sand mine includes a wet and dry plant and storage silos, as well as automated, multi-line, drive-in, drive-out trucking capabilities. The Atascosa facility produces high-quality 40/70 and 100 mesh local sand to serve the Eagle Ford Shale.
Preferred is committed to being a responsible corporate neighbor and worked closely with the local community to select the most advantageous site for our facility. We met personally with the community numerous times and evaluated all possible sites before breaking ground. We care deeply about the communities in which we operate, which is the driving force behind everything we do.
