GLOUCESTERSHIRE: Hanson Formpave, manufacturer of specialist concrete paving products based in Coleford, has alerted the industry that it is not associated with an independent contractor operating in and around Southampton, Hampshire, trading under the name Formpave Ltd.

Formally operating in the county of Oxford, the copycat trader has now relocated to Southampton – Blackfield and Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh – and is advertising a drives and patio service.

Hanson Formpave strongly advises that those businesses, merchants and individuals, which have been approached by Formpave Ltd to make their own, full enquiries before trading/purchasing.

The company has BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 Quality Assurance accreditation and is a BSI registered company.

Hanson Formpave is part of the UK's leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry, producing aggregates (crushed rock, sand and gravel), ready-mixed and precast concrete, asphalt and cement-related materials and a range of building products including concrete pavers, tiles and clay bricks.
