Tarmac to lead commercialization, production and installation of innovative Shuttabloc system
BUY-and-build construction materials group SigmaRoc plc have entered into a licensing agreement with Tarmac Trading Ltd for the manufacture, distribution and installation of their Shuttabloc system.
Shuttabloc, developed by SigmaRoc subsidiary Poundfield Products Ltd, is a novel precast retaining wall with internal reinforcing system and forms part of Poundfield’s offering of innovative off-site solutions.
Protected by a series of patents, the Shuttabloc system has applications in the industrial, agricultural and infrastructure sectors.
SigmaRoc say the partnership entered into with Tarmac is an important next step in the development of Poundfield products, marrying scale, capability and client base with innovative product design.
Tarmac will lead the commercialization, production and installation of the Shuttabloc system with initial technical and advisory support from SigmaRoc and Poundfield.
Max Vermorken, SigmaRoc’s chief executive officer, commented: ‘We are very excited to enter into this partnership with Tarmac, the UK’s leading construction materials business.
‘They are by far the group best placed to ensure the success of a very innovative retaining wall system. Tarmac will bring the scale and on-site installation capacity required to take this system to the next level.’
