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 holding company Holcim, one of the world’s largest cement producers.
We operate ten plants in strategic locations, and have been involved in many major projects, including the new Wembley stadium, Terminal 5 at Heathrow, the 2012 London Olympics, and the Ascot grandstand redevelopment.
