A&G opens Blackburn stock point

Published:  28 July, 2011

LANCASHIRE: Acheson & Glover (A&G), one of the largest independent concrete producers in the UK, has established a new stock point in Blackburn. 

The company's commercial director, Stuart Cook, said: "Since entering the mainland market from Northern Ireland where our quarries and manufacturing plants are based, brand awareness has grown rapidly and new customers are already benefiting from our way of doing business.

"It's important that we develop our business in Britain to include supply capabilities. And, with a base in Blackburn as a starting point, I'm sure merchants will feel more reassured that their products are delivered from a stock point located close to the M65 and M6.

"A further two stock points are planned for the Midlands and the South so that we are within easy reach of our customers throughout the UK," he added.
