Hope Cement became part of Breedon Group plc, the UK’s largest independent construction materials group, following Breedon's acquisition of Hope Construction Materials in August 2016.
The acquisition of Hope was the most significant development in Breedon’s history. It transforms the company into a truly national business, with operations extending from Stornoway in the far north of Scotland to Exeter in Devon, from Pembroke on the west coast to Great Yarmouth on the east.
The enlarged group’s assets include the country’s biggest cement plant, around 60 quarries, 27 asphalt plants, just under 200 concrete plants and a major surfacing and contracting operation. Its combined mineral reserves and resources are in excess of 750 million tonnes, securing the future of the business for decades to come.
