White cement launches at Jewson
Published:  29 October, 2010

COVENTRY: Jewson, supplier of sustainable timber and building materials, will be stocking white cement in its 500 branches, sourced from the world’s largest manufacturer of this product, Aalborg Portland.

On the market since 1985, Aalborg White cement provides exceptional quality and offers one of the most uniform and consistent white cement products in the world, said Jewson.

This is largely thanks to the very pure limestone abundant in Northern Denmark, combined with Aalborg Portland’s advanced technology and experience.

Aalborg White cement is CE marked and offers high reflection and strength, in addition to inherent sulphate resistance and low alkali content. Modern manufacturing technology ensures that the environment, as well as the health and safety of employees, are protected.

Accrording to Stephen Bennett, procurement manager at Jewson: "We hope that our existing and new customers will recognise the quality that Aalborg White cement has to offer.”

Henrik Hougarrd, country manager at Aalborg Portland, said: “We’re delighted to be marketing our own brand in the UK at such a respected builders’ merchant such as Jewson. We hope that our loyal customers, who have been specifying white cement for many years, will continue to choose our product.
