In a move that positions Siemens as Aggregate Industries' preferred UK technology supplier, the two companies have recently signed a £3 million technology and training deal. The new partnership aims to deliver efficiencies and maintenance savings, as well as substantially reduce Aggregate Industries' carbon footprint.
Additionally, Aggregate Industries - which is part of global materials supplier, LafargeHolcim - training will be supported by Siemens, who will supply safety panels to be used in staff training across the company's regional network of 330 UK sites.
"We are delighted to have formed this important strategic agreement to partner with Aggregate Industries," said Mike Houghton, Managing Director of Siemens Process Industries. "It is wide-ranging in that it focuses both on the automation and process control solutions Siemens will deliver, as well as the vitally important training and education support for Aggregate Industries employees and apprentices."
"This agreement positions Siemens as our preferred UK technology supplier, ensuring that we benefit from enhanced operational efficiencies over the long-term," said Gerard Cantwell, Head of Procurement Europe at Aggregate Industries. "This will deliver cost savings and improve system reliability. The technology solutions we will install will also help us to reach our sustainability goals, as we seek to reduce the impact we have on the environment. We look forward to working even more closely [with Siemens] in the years ahead."
