Anglia Concrete Acquisition
Despite market uncertainty, local construction specialist Mick George Concrete has signalled its intent to make further headway and come out in a stronger position, having announced the acquisition of Anglia Concrete, Northamptonshire
Some might say a bold move in the current economic climate, but the firm is no stranger to significant investments, many of which have contributed to the impressive growth of the business in recent times.
The agreement with Heath and Hawkes Ltd will see the Huntingdon based supplier continue concrete production at the original site in Burton Latimer, Kettering.
The deal will see Mick George Concrete take full control of the 2m3 twin-shaft wet batch plant which is capable of 500m3 per day, as well as two 8m barrel mixers.
The new facility is the third Northamptonshire base for Mick George Concrete, adding to the plants at Rushton and Northamptonshire respectfully, and reflects the typically thriving concrete industry that is normally present in the and around the region.
In total, Mick George Concrete now operate from six separate locations, with two more new bases on the horizon.
Their extensive supply capacity and 45 strong Concrete fleet makes them one of the largest independent suppliers in the area and has subsequently contributed to the many high-profile projects that the business has been involved with in recent times; most notably the £1.5bn A14 Huntingdon to Cambridge improvement scheme, amongst others.
