Mr Snell, who has been a Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent since 2017, visited the site located on City Road to meet the production team and see the site plant.
Designed to make the process of asphalt supply much simpler and quicker, the offering includes a ‘click and collect’ service with a guaranteed turnaround of 30 minutes for single loads of standard products, which enables busy customers to order asphalt, or tools and equipment, and pick it up from any one of the business’ 41 Express Asphalt depots nationwide.
The highly-successful visit also involved an engaging discussion between Mr Snell and key Aggregate Industries’ staff such as Ian Dallas, Express Asphalt Area Manager & National Program Lead, on important issues including the future of home building in the region and also the potential for offsite construction.
Ian Dallas commented: “Today’s visit, which we hope is the start of an ongoing positive relationship, allowed us to show Mr Snell first-hand how our innovative Express Asphalt offering is leading the way in providing high-quality and efficient asphalt supply essential to improving and maintaining our local roads. We hope it also demonstrates the importance of having a comprehensive policy for managing the supply of asphalt both locally and nationally.”
Mr Snell added: “Having a robust, first-class local road network is essential to the local community and surrounding businesses alike, especially when it comes to boosting economic activity and tackling congestion. As such, I’d like to say thank you to Aggregate Industries for inviting me to visit their Stoke Express Asphalt site, which clearly plays a vital role in helping to deliver the government’s ambitious targets to improve and maintain our local roads. This is where contractors and the Council can obtain the asphalt they need to mend and improve our roads.”
