Hope announces UK expansion

Rail waggons high res

Hope Construction Materials has announced plans to open new depots and expand existing sites.

In Dagenham a new rail-linked cement distribution depot and packing facility will open this spring.

Also planned for the first quarter of 2016 is a new ready-mix concrete plant and rail-linked aggregates depot in Southampton. In Stratford there will be a new rail-fed aggregates depot adjacent to the Olympic park which is the result of a partnership with rail freight operator DB Schenker.

There’s already a rail-linked cement depot in Theale, but the site now has a rail-fed aggregates facility and a ready-mix concrete plant.

Hope’s chief executive Chris Plant said: “Hope has been growing steadily since launch three years ago and these latest depots are the culmination of our strategy to develop our plant network and improve the service we are able to give our customers. Together these developments represent a major investment in the business and their South East locations mean that they are sure to add value in the future.”

Hope is currently in the process of being acquired by Breedon Aggregates.
