Sowerby Woods Industrial Estate
Barrow-in-Furness' ready mixed concrete batching plant has been operational for over a decade, but Aggregate Industries has had a presence in the area for closer to 20 years. The plant is located on the Park Road Industrial Estate, a stone throws away from Barrow Golf Club.
The team supplies concrete to a range of construction schemes in the area, offering expert knowledge and a helping hand to specify the most suitable mix of concrete for each individual application. And to help their loyal customer base, the site offers a Concrete Collect service, ensuring a speedy turnaround on all orders.
With a reputation delivering high quality products for a range of applications in and around Barrow-in-Furness, the team has supplied ready mix concrete to a number of notable projects. Most recently the team has supplied to a brand new GlaxoSmithKline factory in Ulverston, on the edge of the Lake District. The building is the pharmaceutical company's first new UK factory in almost 40 years, costing approximately £350 million to construct.
Other customers include the local farming community, small to medium sized contractors and local builders. And to help their loyal customer base, the site offers Minimix options, enabling small quantities of up to 4m3 to be ordered for applications of a smaller size.
