Quinn Cement Launches New Bagged Cement Range for UK Merchants with over €3m Investment

Published:  03 April, 2018

Quinn Cement has launched a new range of bagged cement products for their UK customers following an investment of over €3 million in their Cement plant. The range includes three new cement products, General Purpose Cement, Master Grade Cement, and Premium Grade Cement.

Each product in the range is available in robust weatherproof plastic bags following the installation of a new bagging line in the Quinn Cement factory. The new packaging is ideal for Merchants’ and builders’ yards, giving extra protection against the elements, and ease of handling thanks to the rough grip texture of the plastic.

The new Cement range has been tailored to cater for individual applications, with each product boasting properties suited to different purposes, which will appeal to a wider variety of tradesmen.

Quinn Cement’s new high strength product, Premium Grade Cement, offers superior strength at 42,5N. Premium Grade is likely to be a popular choice for screeders and tradesmen requiring a superior strength product, which will appeal widely to Merchants nationwide.

The new Master Grade Cement is ideal for plastering and mortar, thanks to its enhanced workability. Merchants can exclusively order Quinn Master Grade Cement through NBG, who have secured a deal with Quinn to be their sole distributor in the UK this year. With added air entrainer, Master Grade has added frost protection, which combined with the tough weatherproof plastic packaging available, will make this a popular choice in yards and on sites across the UK.

Speaking of the new product range and their exclusive Master Grade deal with NBG, Quinn Building Products’ GB Sales Director, Lee Gillman said,

“It is important for us as a business to be able to react to the changing customer needs, and to ensure UK merchants have the right products to offer their customers. We’ve invested heavily in our product development and in upgrading our cement facilities to deliver this new product range.

News of our new range has been very well received by Merchants and we expect the new range to perform very well this year, particularly with the support of the NBG. We have a very strong relationship with NBG, and this will certainly be strengthened by our recent deal. We’re delighted to partner with one of the country’s leading Merchant buying groups for our Master Grade Cement.”

The the first deliveries of Master Grade Cement arrived in Merchant stores across the UK in mid-February, and NBG’s Keith Olver of Palladium Building Supplies was among the first customers to receive their delivery.

“This new cement deal is testimony to the excellent partnership we at NBG already have with Quinn. Their service is excellent, and they always bend over backwards to help NBG partners. These new products will really help NBG Partners to remain competitive and offer their customers the products they want at a price that suits everyone.

We’ve already received very positive feedback from our customers about the new Master Grade Cement, which comes as no surprise given the reputation Quinn’s have earned for their high quality Cement products.”
