Express Asphalt experience arrives in North Yorkshire
Aggregate Industries improve turnaround times and efficiencies at Halton East asphalt plant
PURCHASING asphalt has just become a whole lot quicker and slicker for construction contractors operating in North Yorkshire, as Aggregate Industries have set up their flagship Express Asphalt offering at Halton East.
Located on Harrogate Road, Skipton, the Halton East site has undergone a revamp in order to accommodate the Express Asphalt collection facility, which officially opened its doors to collect customers on the 2 April 2018.
The new service means that, for the first time in the area, customers can pre-order from the business’ large portfolio of asphalt solutions at their convenience, before collecting their order from the plant. The result is shorter turnaround times and improved efficiencies on site.
In addition, the site has been equipped with its own Express Shop offering a range of contractor tools and equipment, including bituminous products, joint sealants, overbanding, cleaning and release agents, as well as pre-coated chippings and gas.
Busy customers can now pick up any last minute extras they may need when collecting their asphalt order, saving them time when carrying out contract work. The shop also offers free snacks and drinks while customers are waiting for their loads.
The collection service can be accessed via the Express Asphalt app and the Express Collect app, which offers a ‘click and collect’ service that allows customers to order asphalt, or tools and equipment, and pick it up from any one of the business’ Express Asphalt depots.
David Shaw, area manager for Express Asphalt in the North region, said: ‘We know that our customers are under immense time and cost pressures, so we want to do everything we can to make their lives that little bit easier.
‘We have, therefore, invested in updating our popular Halton East asphalt plant to include the Express Collection service, meaning customers can pre-order their specification to collect. The increased service offer ensures that customers can get a wide range of materials and equipment to carry out their work with a quick turnaround time.
‘Alongside this, we’ve launched an Express Shop on site too, meaning customers can get their hands on all types of tools, as well as refreshments, when they come to pick up their order.
‘The result is the ultimate one-stop-shop for the full scope of asphalt needs in the North Yorkshire region – and we’d urge all customers, new and existing, to take advantage of this fantastic new service offer.’
Both the Express Asphalt and the Express Collect apps can be downloaded from the App Store or Play Store for iOS and Android.
