Following the recent announcement of the opening of Datchet Quarry CDE is delighted to announce a partnership with CEMEX to deliver a further three new sand and aggregates washing projects across the Midlands and South of England. Over the four projects CEMEX is making a substantial investment to further strengthen their UK aggregates operations. To date two projects are complete with another two to commission before the end of 2016.
A market leader in ready mixed concrete, crushed rock, sand and gravel, CEMEX is firmly established in the UK construction industry. The company’s extensive portfolio includes 230 concrete mixing plants and 63 quarries serving the UK market.
Matthew Bunting, Director of Business Development UK & Ireland, says, “We are pleased to be working once again with CEMEX on their progressive aggregates projects in the UK. The CDE team has been designing, manufacturing and installing these projects in the past few months and we are delighted to have completed commissioning of the first two projects. We look forward to announcing a number of open days in conjunction with CEMEX to celebrate the completion of these projects later this year.”
The new quarry at Datchet will be a strategically important site providing approximately 400,000 tonnes of materials each year, while the replacement plants at the three existing sites will ensure increased capacity and maximum material recovery.
Rob Doody, Operations Director Aggregates CEMEX UK comments, “Our investment in new CDE plants allows us to increase capacity in a number of growth markets around the country as well as investing in new mineral areas. They represent an investment in the future of our aggregate business and highlight the long term importance of this business within the UK.”
