Lafarge celebrates 50th anniversary

Published:  05 August, 2013

Lafarge Tarmac has celebrated a milestone anniversary at its landmark Dunbar Plant.

Based in East Lothian, Scotland, the Dunbar Plant marked its 50th birthday with a party for over 200 people, including past and current employees, plant managers and members of the community councils.

The Dunbar plant is one of East Lothian’s most enduring businesses and has helped build the equivalent of 6.5m houses since it was founded. Many of its employees have been there for a large part of its life, with three 35-year-long service awards also being awarded to current employees at the event.

Charles Law, managing director of Lafarge Tarmac’s cement and lime business in the UK, said: “The Dunbar site remains a key part of our business as the only cement plant in the whole of Scotland. All those who have worked at the plant over the years are part of its considerable success story.”
