Hope Construction Materials is the latest company to pledge its backing as a tourist board Patron, to help promote the Peak District as a world class destination.
Hope operates two major manufacturing sites in the area – its cement plant in the Hope Valley and Dowlow Quarry, which processes limestone aggregates products, near Buxton.
“We are delighted to welcome Hope Construction Materials on board as one of our key business ambassadors in our quest to promote the Peak District as the perfect place for a short break or holiday for visitors from both home and abroad,” said David James, the tourist board’s Chief Executive.
“We have had a long-standing partnership with the Hope cement plant, and it’s a pleasure to extend this relationship to Dowlow Quarry as well, now that they are both part of the Hope Construction Materials network.
“All our Patrons make a huge contribution to our efforts to put the area on the world tourism map, and we very much appreciate their commitment to helping us maintain and widen its expanding national and international profile.
“They also lead the way for smaller businesses and organisations, now numbering around 600, to join us as members in support of our work, and share in a range of marketing and PR campaigns designed to attract more staying visitors, create more jobs and boost the local and regional economy.”
Ashley Bryan, Industrial Director of Hope Construction Materials, added: “As part of a well-established Peak District industry, but a very new, entrepreneurial business, we are very pleased to continue our relationship with Visit Peak District & Derbyshire.
“Hope Construction Materials prides itself on supporting the local economy and community around its operations. Quarrying and cement manufacturing are an important part of the industrial heritage of this area – a key element of the fundamental make-up of the Peak District.
“By becoming a Patron of Visit Peak District & Derbyshire, we hope to demonstrate the responsible role we play in our continued support for the area and its future.”
