Highways Reporters

Tarmac has acquired 11 readymix concrete sites from Breedon Aggregates and Hope Construction Materials.

The acquisition is part of Tarmac’s strategy to ensure it is well positioned to support UK infrastructure and construction growth.  Tarmac say it will provide significant additional production capacity and coverage for customers, by further strengthening the company’s nationwide network of 120 readymix plants.

Mark Joel, Tarmac managing director for Readymix Concrete and Building Products, said: “The acquisition of these sites broadens our nationwide customer offer ensuring that we have ability to serve all major urban conurbations, as well as supplying bespoke projects from a fleet of mobile units.  Importantly, we have the flexibility and capacity to meet the supply requirements of any type or size of project – from small schemes through to major housing, commercial, or infrastructure projects.

“Our plant network will continue to be underpinned by commercial, distribution and technical experts so that we offer high-quality customer support from 16 local service centres.”

The locations of the acquired sites include:

Inverness, Highland

Cloddach, Moray

Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Boston, Lincolnshire

Spalding, Lincolnshire

Wisbech, Cambridgeshire

Telford, Halesfield, Shropshire

Telford, Trenchlock, Shropshire

Shrewsbury, Bayston, Shropshire

Coleford, Stowfield, Gloucestershire

Leinthall, Herefordshire

A number of the sites were formerly owned by Tarmac, three of which are located in Tarmac quarries. The acquisition of these sites follows Breedon Aggregates’ takeover of Hope Construction Materials.
