Tarmac has acquired Scottish Power’s 50% share of the ScotAsh Ltd joint venture, a market leader in sustainable construction products.
Tarmac will now take full ownership of ScotAsh, which has operated since 1999, and will continue to operate the company under the ScotAsh name, offering its full range of products.
With nearly 20 years of experience, ScotAsh manufactures products using pulverised fuel ash (PFA) from power stations, providing a high quality and sustainable alternative to primary aggregates, cements, and grouts.
Allan Everett, Ash business manager at Tarmac, said: “Each year, ScotAsh supplies its range of sustainable, technologically advanced products to customers within the UK and global construction industry, including to Tarmac’s Dunbar Cement Plant for production of its Phoenix cement.
“Bringing the company fully into the Tarmac fold will help us further enhance the combined expertise of both businesses, leverage our national supply and import capabilities for PFA, and strengthen our ability to deliver the cutting-edge solutions to customers.”
