LafargeHolcim acquires UK’s Kendall Group

LafargeHolcim said it has acquired The Kendall Group, a leading aggregates and ready-mix concrete manufacturer with net sales of around CHF 33 million in 2017 operating in the South of England.

Aggregate Industries is a leading player in the construction and infrastructure industries. It produces and supplies a wide range of construction materials including aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete and precast concrete products. It also produces, imports and supplies cementitious materials and offers a national road surfacing and contracting service.

Speaking on the acquisition, Jan Jenisch, Group CEO of LafargeHolcim: “The Kendall Group is a successful business with a strong record of performance, good reputation and passionate people and is highly complementary to our existing operations in the UK. We welcome our new colleagues to the Group and look forward to further developing our business in the UK together.”

The new business will be managed by LafargeHolcim’s subsidiary Aggregate Industries expanding its operations in the South of England. The region where Kendall is active is expected to benefit from above national average growth, especially in the housing segment.
