GRS has bought Aggregate Industries’ bagged aggregate operations in Staffordshire and Devon. The price was not disclosed.
GRS says that its latest acquisitions secure its place as ‘the UK’s number one packed aggregate supplier’.
The plants are located at Barton under Needwood (near Burton upon Trent) and Uffculme (near Taunton).
Chief executive Jon Fisher said: “Along with the purchase of Maen Karne, buying this acquisition reflects our optimism in the economy and the building industry. Over the next few weeks we’ll be working to ensure a seamless transition for existing customers of the two plants so they start to experience the high levels of service we’re able to provide, coupled with an extensive range of core, decorative and specialised aggregates.”
