Company announces plans to open new production, distribution, and admin centre in Ashbourne
DERBYSHIRE Specialist Aggregates are opening a new Central Hub in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Covering almost 30,000 square metres, the site will include new manufacturing, distribution, and administration facilities, which will help service the company’s significant growth across many sectors, including resin-bound and decorative aggregates, and pebble dashing. The company is also a major supplier to the highways sector.
Martin Poulter, chief executive officer and founder of Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates, said: ‘We are delighted to announce the most significant investment in Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates’ 36-year history. The Central Hub location at Airfield Industrial Estate is a huge step forward in our plans for future growth and sustainability for the business.
‘It is especially pleasing to bring good news to an area that has recently been sadly affected by company closures. Work will commence immediately, and plans include delivering a phased production and distribution centre, as well as new office accommodation.’
Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates currently provide employment for 64 people and the new Central Hub has the scope to create up to 30 new jobs over the next few years. The company is the home of DALTEX, the UK’s leading brand of resin-bound aggregates, as well as decorativeaggregates.com, which offers a wide range of landscaping and decorative aggregates to the home consumer market.
Derbyshire Specialist Aggregates have seven sites across the UK, including their head office and main production facility in Youlgrave, Derbyshire, Ryder Point, DALTEX trade centres in Brighouse and Bridgend, as well as a slate plant in Bangor. These are supported by two large dock facilities at Mersey Wharf and in Goole.
