During 2016 we increased our ability to support our customers following the acquisition of 11 readymix concrete plants from Breedon Aggregates and Hope Construction Materials.
These new plants are located across the country and include sites in Scotland, Lincolnshire and Shropshire and bring 22 new colleagues into the Tarmac family. Martin Riley, Tarmac Senior Vice President, commented, “ I’m pleased to welcome the new colleagues to our Readymix business. They join us just one year after we became part of the CRH Group and will help achieve our shared vision of becoming the leading building materials company in the world.” “These plants are in the communities in which they operate. So they know their local markets very well. They can provide excellent customer service, enhance our reputation in the local areas and improve the profitability of the the company.“
“Buying these sites is a good example of ‘Focused Growth’, one of our four Strategic Pillars. These sites are a good fit for our business and will enable us to give greater coverage to our customers.”
