All aggregates are supplied to the concrete batching plants by rail. This offers many environmental benefits, not least of all a reduction in lorry movements on already congested roads in London. Our rail facilities allow us the opportunity to import aggregates from greater distances that would be unsustainable by road.
As an Aggregate Industries business, we benefit from the resources and capabilities of a highly skilled research and development team, and the financial and global business strength of its parent company Holcim, one of the world’s largest cement producers and innovator of leading brands such as ECOPact, DYNAMax.
We operate twelve plants in strategic locations, and have been involved in many major projects, including Wembley stadium, Terminal 5 at Heathrow, 2012 London Olympics, Ascot grandstand redevelopment, Canary Wharf and the Battersea area redevelopment, to name just a few.
Principles and expertise
Our overriding principles are health and safety, sustainability, customer service and quality.
Our products and practices are regularly reviewed in order to meet and exceed environmental standards, and we remain at the forefront of developments in our sector.
As part of Aggregate Industries and Holcim we supply and help innovate the global low carbon range ECOPact and help our customers build sustainably with the support of our technical experts and carbon specialists. We have carbon reporting tools and calculators to help you make the best choices for your project.
In another industry first, we’re pleased share with customers new and more accurate environmental product declarations (EPDs). These are now specific to the product mix and the plant at which they are produced across our London Concrete business and not based on regional averages. This is a significant move by which we are committed to decarbonise and show data transparency throughout our supply chain.
