Hope makes a concrete investment

Hope Construction Materials, a UK-based supplier of cement and concrete, is investing £14M to boost production at its Hope Works cement plant.

The company has started several major capital projects which it hopes will help improve the plant’s sustainability, improve the efficiency of the operation and secure future supplies for construction.

Hope currently supplies around 15% of the UK’s cement consumption.

The investment projects include construction of a new storage facility to increase stock holding of cement clinker and refurbishment of a large section of one of two kilns.

Hope Works operations manager Ed Cavanagh said: “The installation of the new kiln shell section is a spectacular piece of engineering involving several teams and very careful planning.

“Once this programme is complete, we will have an upgraded production plant, ready for the challenges of an increasingly busy time for building in the UK.”
