Revaya Quarry – In 2021 the company won a tender to operate the quarry, which is a limestone quarry, until the end of 2029, with an option to extend the work up to 20 years altogether. The quarry is a 40 dunam area and maintains large reserves. The company intends to establish a plant for the manufacturing of industrial-use aggregates (gravel, cement, etc.), an asphalt plant and a cement plant.

Meggido Plant (AMMANN) - In 2020 the company won a tender to operate the quarry for 20 years, which is basalt quarry located upon 100 dunams. The company intends to manufacture industrial-use aggregates in the quarry, as well as for various projects.

Asphalt Plant (Ammann) - In April 2012, the company founded Oren Ben-Ari Asphalt Ltd., as part of the Group, to produce, distribute and market asphalt products. The asphalt plant is in the Hotzei Yehuda quarry and built to the most advanced technological standards.

Asphalt Plant (Ammann) – In May 2016 the company founded a new asphalt plant located at the Har Shahar Quarry, Mashabei Sadeh. The plant was established as part of the expansion of the company’s production, diversification, and marketing of various asphalt products. In late 2018 the company initiated the upgrade of 2 of the group’s asphalt factories in order to be able to support the company’s evolving needs, by increasing production rates and maintaining tighter schedules.

Railway Works

In 2016 the group won, in partnership with a foreign company, three long-term tenders of Israel Railways - A contract for laying upper railway, a contract for electrical railway welding and a contract for thermal rail welding, throughout all of Israel. It should be noted that in order to meet the terms of the RFT, the group had to meet a long line of severe requirements at a higher level than the standard for local projects, which also serves as a barrier of entry into this segment.

Mechanical Engineering Equipment, Trucks, and Haulage

Elyakim Ben-Ari owns a fleet of mechanical engineering equipment used by the group in quarry work and engineering projects, providing services to external customers. The group owns a garage that provides solutions solely for the independent needs of the group including trucks, heavy vehicles and a garage for mechanical engineering equipment. The garage is located on the Group’s private land in the Ashdod Industrial Zone. Elyakim Ben-Ari owns dozens of trucks for transporting quarry materials and waste and providing services to the Group’s divisions and external customers with long-term contracts.


The Ben-Ari Group takes into account the importance of the environment at all times, and invests operations to preserve and promote this important issue. The group operates, in the framework of its long-term operation agreements, several transit stations for refuse including “Hiriya” (of Greater Tel Aviv urban union), the largest in the country, and a waste disposal facility by Ashkelon Municipality. The group sorts and recycles refuse and transports the non-recyclable waste to be buried at an approved site in the south of the country. The group is currently constructing a large and modern compost facility in southern Israel, upon 260 dunam, the purpose of which is to absorb and recycle organic waste and sludge waste from all over the country, by producing compost, thereby reducing the amount of waste intended for burial, both for the group’s activities in this field, as well as for its clients.

Community Outreach

The group is involved in its community and makes annual contributions to associations and people in need (children with learning disabilities and youth at risk). The group provides training at its own expense for several 12th-grade students before they are drafted, in the earthworks and engineering equipment field, in order to enable them to join such operations in the future.

    Antibody-based therapeutics play a central role in medicine and patent protection is critical to reaping the financial benefits from such successful therapeutic agents. Recent occurrences suggest that the barriers to securing broad patent protection in the US have increased. Innovative companies should develop and practice proper patent strategies ensuring that they receive the proper exclusionary patent protection that antibody-related innovations deserve.
