Aggregate Industries has bought two small companies, acquiring Sitebatch and Roller Compacted Concrete, both based in Bourne, Lincolnshire, for an undisclosed sum. The two firms, which together employ 20 people, provide on-site material mixing services. They will form a sub-division of Aggregates’ surfacing operation Bardon Contracting business and keep their names.
Hugh Armitage, Bardon Contracting’s managing director, said: "The acquisition of Sitebatch and Roller Compacted Concrete complements our existing business and enables us to further enhance our supply chain capability for customers." Aggregate, the UK’s fourth largest aggregates producer and the second largest asphalt supplier, was bought by Holcim for UK£1.8bn a year ago.
