Lafarge to invest in UK plant
Published: 07 March 2005

Lafarge will invest Euro 45m in the construction of a new plasterboard plant in the Midlands, inner counties of the UK, it was reported on March 4, 2005.  The new plant will enable Lafarge to increase its UK by 50 per cent and will create 60 new jobs. The plant construction will start off in 2005. Lafarge’s investment was prompted by a contract with UK energy company EDF Energy, a subsidiary of French energy company EDF, which ensures the source of synthetic gypsum from EDF Energy’s power station in Cottam in the Nottinghamshire county, the East Midlands of the UK.
