ABOUT US

Breedon is a leading construction materials group in the UK and Ireland. Following our acquisition of Lagan Group on 20 April 2018, we operate two cement plants and around 70 quarries, 40 asphalt plants, 200 ready-mixed concrete plants, nine concrete and clay products plants, four contract surfacing businesses, six import/export terminals and two slate production facilities.

We have strong asset backing, with around 870 million tonnes of mineral reserves and resources. Our strategy is to continue growing organically and through consolidation of the UK heavyside building materials sector.

We operate as three autonomous divisions:  Breedon Northern and Breedon Southern are fully-integrated aggregates and downstream products businesses, and Breedon Cement is the UK's only independent cement producer.

On 20 April 2018 Breedon acquired Lagan Group, a leading supplier of construction materials and contract surfacing in Ireland and the UK, supplying a range of bulk and bagged cement, aggregates, asphalt and bitumen, with services ranging from road surfacing and maintenance to airfield surfacing. Founded in 1960, Lagan is one of the largest privately-owned companies in Ireland, employing approximately 750 people.

Lagan’s assets include: a modern cement manufacturing facility, nine active quarries across the UK & Ireland (including Welsh Slate), 13 asphalt plants, nine ready-mixed concrete plants, a brick manufacturing plant, four port terminals (one for cement export, one for aggregates export and two for bitumen import & export) and a share in a bitumen vessel.  Lagan's operations are currently being integrated into the Breedon Group.
