WEST SUSSEX: Day Group has opened a new CJ Burgess aggregates bagging operation at Shoreham Port.

Located at Kingston Wharf, Brighton Road, the modern site will complement the existing CJB Bagging facilities at Crawley, Tolworth and Lydd in Kent.

It extends the company’s service to builders’ merchants and aggregates customers throughout the South East, and particularly those in Sussex and the surrounding areas.

The Shoreham plant will specialise in marine-dredged aggregate and also offers a wide range of specialised building sands. The facility has created eight jobs.

"By opening a site at Shoreham we can provide a first class service to our local customers in Sussex and increase the volume of aggregates handled by the port," aid Jonathan Day, director of merchant sales at Day Group.

"We will be cutting down the lorry miles and reducing the carbon footprint associated with our deliveries."

The business has been serving the builders merchants' industry for over 20 years and can supply materials in own-brand bulk bags, 25kg polythene bags or direct loose deliveries.

The product range includes sands and aggregates, decorative stone, recycled EcoSand and EcoBlend, path gravels, track ballast, salt and building and equestrian sands.
