New Bridgnorth concrete plant opens its doors
Ongoing expansion of TG Concrete continues with opening of new ready-mix plant in Shropshire
TG Concrete, part of the family-owned Shropshire firm Tudor Griffiths Group, have created six new jobs with the opening of a brand-new concrete plant adjacent to the TG Builders’ Merchants branch at Chartwell Park, in Bridgnorth.
The new facility, which adds to TG Concrete’s existing plants across Shropshire, Cheshire and North and Mid-Wales, is capable of producing up to 80 cubic metres of concrete per hour and has seen the company invest in six new truckmixers to serve customers across a wider geographical area.
‘We’re very pleased with the new plant as we have been able to design and build it from scratch, which means we have been able to create facilities that suit our requirements perfectly,’ said TG Concrete general manager Dave Morris.
‘We’ve paid special attention to the environmental impact of the site too, making special arrangements to harvest water so that it’s an entirely recycled water plant.’
The new Bridgnorth plant will offer concrete products to suit all commercial, residential and DIY projects, including dry screed, liquid screed, self-compacting concrete, and coloured concrete, and all products produced will comply with British and European standards.
The plant is equipped with four aggregate bins and three 80-tonne storage silos, allowing the team to produce a number of classes of ready-mixed concrete, as well as the newly launched TG Cemfloor liquid floor screed. It also has a pan mixer to accommodate collect customers.
TG Group say the new plant is part of an ongoing expansion of their TG Concrete division, which has included the appointment of a new director, Tim Hall, to the board of the TG Concrete Bridgnorth site.
Mr Hall has spent his entire career in the aggregates industry. He was previously chief executive officer of Breedon South, director of Tarmac Ltd’s Western Area, managing director of Tarmac Western Ltd, and spent 27 years with Nash Rocks. Currently, he is also a non-executive director of SigmaRoc.
