Tarmac has appointed Graeme Bridge as the new cement plant manager for its Aberthaw plant in South Wales. The plant is the only cement plant in South Wales. In this role, Bridge will be responsible for managing the site’s operations in a safe and environmentally friendly way, whilst also maintaining and benefitting the company’s community activity.
Cement made at the Aberthaw plant has contributed to some of the most significant construction projects in Wales in recent times. This includes Pembroke power station, the millennium centre, and the home of the Welsh government (the Senedd).
Bridge graduated from the University of Birmingham as a mechanical engineer and has a MBA from Manchester Business School. He has more than 24 years of operational experience in the cement, sugar, and power generation industries across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Most recently, Bridge held the role of Health and Safety Director at Lafarge Africa. He has 19 years of experience in cement plant management, gained in his time spent working in Nigeria and the Philippines. Bridge began his career working for Blue Circle in the Philippines in 2000.
“I am delighted to join to lead the experienced team at Aberthaw,” said Bridge. “As a plant, delivering products across the UK, we have a huge opportunity to produces volumes to meet market needs, whilst delivering these safely and meeting all environmental controls. I am looking forward to working across departments to ensure we continue to drive performance to meet market challenges, whilst enhancing our activity within the local community.”
