The building materials provider says the move will combine the best of both businesses; in particular Stalybridge’s knowledge and extensive experience of the local market, and Aggregate Industries’ additional supply capabilities through its two plants which serve the city and its extensive product range.
Aggregates Industries adds that customers will benefit from added convenience with SRM orders managed through a newly created area hub based at its Stalybridge plants. The hub will manage the end-to-end order process from taking orders to shipping the concrete to customers' sites.
Joanne Wilkins, area general manager at Aggregate Industries, said: “With an innovative product range including our ECOPact sustainable concrete solutions and the local nous of the teams serving the area, we are well poised to drive construction in Manchester into an innovative, green future.”
Ryan Cropper, the new hub manager at SRM, added: “The new area hub is truly a one stop shop for Manchester’s concrete needs. We are always looking at ways we can serve our customers better and through this convenient, streamlined process, coupled with increased capacity and a larger product portfolio, SRM is well positioned to lead the local concrete market.”
The area hub launched on 29th April, by Aggregate Industries says it may take some time for all signage to be changed to reflect the change to SRM.
