Abundant in many parts of the world, limestone is a sedimentary rock that comes in different shades, ranging from dark grey to white. A few places around the world lack easy access to limestone. In Chile, for example, limestone is often at high elevation in mountainous regions or is in river deltas, while in Bangladesh, limestone is scarce as most of the earth is clay- or mud-based rather than rock-based.

Shun Shing controls about 25% of Bangladesh’s limestone import market.

Shun Shing Group sources limestone from Thailand, Vietnam and Oman and exports the commodity to Bangladesh.



Construction aggregate, or simply “aggregate”, is a broad category of coarse particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregates are the most mined materials in the world.

Shun Shing Group is exporting aggregate from Vietnam and Oman for the Bangladesh market and actively exploring new markets.
