UK-based LafargeHolcim subsidiary, Aggregate Industries, has signed a servicing and maintenance contract with United Plant Services (UPS) covering half of building material company’s plant assets in northern Scotland, Northern Ireland, and southeast England.
UPS will take over quarry-based workshops located at Aggregate Industries sites in Cookstown in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Grain in Kent on a Transfer of Operations – Protection of Employment (TUPE) basis. Under this arrangement, UPS will maintain existing Aggregate Industry’s staff at these sites.
UPS will also introduce a new paperless real-time reporting system that will track scheduled and completed works. The system will provide Aggregate Industries sites around the UK with access to the UPS portal to view events and download information as required.
“We are very keen to start working with UPS to provide a seamless maintenance solution to reduce downtime and increase utilisation throughout the fleet,” said Paul Mitchinson, National HME Fleet Manager at Aggregate Industries.
