Aggregate Industries, a major UK construction materials supplier and member of the LafargeHolcim Group, has acquired the Kendall Group, a leading aggregates and ready-mixed concrete manufacturer operating in the South of England.
The acquisition of the Kendall Group, which posted net sales of around £25 million in 2017, will allow Aggregate Industries to expand its operations in the South of England. The region where Kendall is active is expected to benefit from above national average growth, especially in the housing segment.
The purchase will also enable Aggregate Industries to enter the dredging business and secure a long-term position in this attractive market segment.
François Pétry, CEO of Aggregate Industries, said: “The Kendall Group perfectly complements our existing activities, both in the geography of its operations and its product offering.
