Acquisition will significantly enhance Breedon Surfacing Solution’s offer in the Midlands 

BREEDON Group plc have announced the acquisition of Phoenix Surfacing, a leading independent, multi-disciplined, surfacing contractor based in the Midlands.

The acquisition of Phoenix Surfacing builds upon Breedon’s focus on expanding their Surfacing Solutions business and follows the successful integration of Minster Surfacing, an award-winning regional surfacing business based in Lincoln, that Breedon acquired in 2023, as well as the 2022 acquisition of the regionally renowned Thomas Bow Ltd, a surfacing and civil engineering contractor based in the East Midlands.


Founded in 1991, Phoenix have more than 30 years’ experience in the design and delivery of successful highways and infrastructure projects for both public and private sector clients. The business has successfully grown into one of the Midlands’ leading independent surfacing contractors and merchanting businesses, with an annual turnover of around £23–24 million.

From rapid response pothole repair programming through to complete road resurfacing and civil construction projects, Phoenix’s teams have the experience, skills and expertise necessary to deliver individually planned projects from inception to completion.

James Haluch, managing director of Surfacing Solutions at Breedon, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Phoenix to the Breedon team as we continue to focus on expanding our Surfacing Solutions business’ geographic footprint and offer for our clients.

‘Phoenix Surfacing have built up a huge amount of experience over the course of their history and have an outstanding delivery team; the combination of our businesses will significantly enhance our offer in the Midlands, while also strengthening our regional surfacing, airfields, and recycled asphalt capabilities across the Breedon group.’

Alistair Lauder, managing director of Phoenix Surfacing, commented: ‘This is a significant milestone in our company’s history and we are excited about the opportunities the transaction will bring to our customers and colleagues. We look forward to leveraging the strengths of Phoenix and Breedon together, to enhance our overall capabilities and provide an excellent service for our customers.

‘Since we founded Phoenix Surfacing in 1991, we have always focused on delivering the best customer service, supporting our people, and growing our business, and Breedon is the perfect partner for us as we continue to deliver on these goals.’
