Dry mortar continues to gain share in Britain
Published: 17 January 2006

Though behind a number of Continental markets, where the cement groups push the product, in terms of product acceptance, the British dry mortar market continues to expand against the background of a largely static industry. CPI Euromix, the market leader has announced the construction of a ninth plant in Great Britain, following the opening of two new plants last year, in Bristol in the autumn and in Southampton during the spring. CPI Euromix belongs to the Irish-based Grafton Group, whose main business is in building materials distribution in Britain and Ireland and generated a turnover of some EUR2,600m in 2005.
