ScottishPower sells its 50 per cent share in sustainable construction products joint-venture business
TARMAC have acquired ScottishPower’s 50 per cent share of the ScotAsh Ltd joint venture, a market leader in sustainable construction products, and will now take full ownership of ScotAsh, which they have operated since 1999.
The company will continue to operate under the ScotAsh name, offering its full range of products.
With nearly 20 years’ experience, ScotAsh manufacture products using recycled pulverized fuel ash (PFA) from power stations, providing a high-quality and sustainable alternative to primary aggregates, cements and grouts.
Allan Everett, ash business manager at Tarmac, said: ‘Each year, ScotAsh supply their range of sustainable, technologically advanced products to customers within the UK and global construction industry, including Tarmac’s Dunbar cement plant for production of its Phoenix cement.
‘Bringing the company fully into the Tarmac fold will help us further enhance the combined expertise of both businesses, leverage our national supply and import capabilities for PFA, and strengthen our ability to deliver cutting-edge solutions to customers.’
