Here at Greengates Builders Merchants, Lancashire we stock Castle Cement however changes have recently been made to their brand name. Castle Cement has now been rebranded as Hanson Cement.
Hanson has decided to bring together its Castle Cement and Civil and Marine businesses to form the UK's largest producer of cement-related products under the new brand of Hanson Cement.
Castle Cement has around 25% of the UK Portland cement market, while Civil and Marine is a leading producer of ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) a high-quality cement replacement used in ready-mixed and precast concrete.
As Hanson Cement, the combined business will operate nine production sites and depots with a centralised ordering system, one invoice and one point of contact.
Hanson Cement commercial director Keith Ellis, said ‘that there will be no change to products, just the brand name. The Castle branding, with its iconic red turret, will remain on all our packed products.’
The move, which is supported by investment in new IT systems to ensure a smooth transition, comes as part of Hanson's ongoing strategy to position itself as the leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry.
So there is no need to worry Castle Cement is still here and is still available it is just simply under the different brand name of Hanson Cement.
