Company

Hanson UK is a leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry.

We produce aggregates (crushed rock, sand and gravel), ready-mixed concrete, asphalt, cement and cement related materials. 

Our basic raw materials are used to make added value products:

  • Crushed rock and sand is mixed with bitumen to make asphalt for road surfacing
  • Sand, gravel and limestone is mixed with cement to make ready-mixed concrete
  • Aggregates and cement are put into handy sized bags for selling through builders' merchants and DIY stores

Our principal markets are the major conurbations in England and Wales and the central belt of Scotland. We have no production operations in Northern Ireland. We employ around 3,500 people in jobs ranging from specialist and professional managers through to production operatives.

The location of our quarries is determined by a number of factors, not least geology and planning constraints. Where practical, our production sites are located close to core markets to reduce the costs and impact of transport. We operate a series of depots and wharves, supplied by road, rail and sea, to ensure the efficient transfer of aggregates and cement to areas of greatest demand and where local materials are not readily available.

We operate a fleet of more than 1,200 vehicles to deliver our products, including 850 tippers and mixers operated by independent owner-drivers under a franchise agreement. We also have a fleet of four locomotives and 140 wagons operated by our joint venture rail freight business Mendip Rail. Our diverse customer base includes public sector works, major infrastructure projects, local building and civil engineering contracts and DIY projects.

We are part of the HeidelbergCement Group, one of the largest building materials manufacturers in the world, the global market leader in aggregates which also has leading positions in cement, concrete and other downstream activities. The Group employs around 60,000 people at 3,000 production sites in around 60 countries on five continents.

Our UK headquarters is in Maidenhead.
