New manager at Cauldon cement plant
Lafarge Cement appoint Stuart Hutchings as new manager of Cauldon works in Staffordshire
LAFARGE Cement, part of Aggregate Industries, have appointed Stuart Hutchings as the new manager of their Cauldon Plant.
Located in Staffordshire, the compact site has a long history as the first dry-process cement plant in the UK. It has been in operation for more than 60 years
With more than 20 years of experience within the cement industry, Mr Hutchings (pictured) is now responsible for the plant, which produces approximately 1 million tonnes of cement per annum and employs around 150 staff.
He commented: ‘Cauldon is a world-class operation and it is great to see LafargeHolcim recognize this and invest further to ensure it continues to lead the way, which is why we are currently looking to improve our production process and reduce our carbon footprint.’
Lafarge Cement are currently planning a potential multi-million-pound investment project to develop an additional chloride bypass, which will stabilize the production process, in addition to a new pre-processing plant for the storage of solid and liquid alternative fuels.
‘We take our role as part of the local community very seriously, which is why we are going through an extensive consultation process to ensure the new bypass scheme will benefit everyone,’ added Mr Hutchings.
‘I look forward to getting to know the local community further and see the plant remain at the forefront of the industry.’
