HILLS Quarry Products have recently signed an agreement with CEMEX UK Operations Ltd to acquire their ready-mixed concrete operation at Bone Lane, Newbury, Berkshire, for an undisclosed sum.
This latest expansion into neighbouring areas further cements Wiltshire-based Hills’ position as one of the largest suppliers of quarry products and ready-mixed concrete in the region.
Since the agreement, Hills Quarry Products, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hill Group Ltd, have been on site in Newbury carrying out routine maintenance and installing a new computerized batching system.
‘Acquiring the site complements our existing facilities at Shorncote in south Gloucestershire, Lower Compton in Wiltshire and Woodsford in Dorset,’ said Alan Mackenzie, group director of Hills Quarry Products.
‘It gives us the strategic opportunity to develop our market in the west Berkshire, north Hampshire and south Oxfordshire areas.’
