A Message to our customers

Dear Customer,

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, we began to respond and adapt our strategy and processes to the challenges raised by COVID-19 with the health and safety of our employees, customers and our communities guiding our decisions. 

During these challenging times the Team at Aggregate Industries have been working tirelessly to make sure we live up to our vision of being the supplier of choice for our customers, putting your needs at the heart of our strategy. 

NHS Nightingale Manchester

Earlier this month, we supplied Strike early high strength concrete to the GMEX convention centre in Manchester which has been converted into a 1000 patient Nightingale hospital. We're delighted to be contributing to so many NHS focused projects at this challenging time, and we are proud of the teams involved in supplying the materials to such a tight deadline.

Chester plant re-opening to supply NHS Nightingale

We recently re-opened our temporarily closed Chester plant to supply an urgent requirement of over 85m3 of high early strength Strike concrete to the Deeside Leisure Centre near Queensferry. This was used in order to convert the facility into a 250 patient Nightingale hospital to aid the NHS fight against coronavirus. The delivery of the concrete required extensive, rapid planning, including securing supplies of raw materials,and arranging staff and drivers. A great effort by all involved to meet such a challenging, tight deadline!

Aggregate Industries Supports Multiple Major NHS Projects

Committed to meeting the complex challenge of providing critical construction supplies amid an unprecedented time for industry, Aggregate Industries is proud to announce its involvement in a number of major NHS projects. Crucially, the business continues to be firmly at the helm in supporting the development of various critical emergency hospital facilities for coronavirus patients across the UK.

Most recently, the Aggregate Industries’ team supplied an urgent concrete specification required in the transformation of Deeside Leisure Centre, North Wales, into a 250-bed emergency hospital. 

NHS Access Road

Our specialist contracting arm Spadeoak has been instrumental in delivering a vital access road to the NHS Nightingale Hospital at London's ExCeL Centre. Today, we're proud to announce that we have donated the asphalt required for this project. We commend the efforts of everybody working tirelessly to construct the hospital, and are delighted to have played our part.

Cement Team Donation

Our Cement team at Cauldon has responded to the call from local medical practices, donating FFP3 masks, nitrile gloves and hand sanitiser. In addition, they also supplied sanitiser to a local carer in Cauldon village. The surgeries in receipt of these donations have served the local community incredibly well over the years - including a vast number of Cauldon staff and their families - and we are delighted to be able to help our NHS at this challenging time.
