It’s in the bag for Lafarge Cement

The long established cement plant now operates under the Lafarge Cement name, following the LafargeHolcim merger in July 2015, when it became part of Aggregate Industries.

Now part of the world’s largest building materials supplier – LafargeHolcim – Lafarge Cement offers a wide variety of bulk and packed cementitious materials.

To mark its new position in the market, Lafarge Cement has launched a new line of paper bags for the popular General Purpose cement, and plastic bags for the newly named General Purpose + cement, both of which will feature the updated Lafarge Cement branding and be available as 25kg bags.

With a strong history in the town dating back to 1970; employees, customers and suppliers of the Cookstown plant can be assured that it’s ‘business as usual’ for the local operation.

Clive Grudgings, Commercial Director at Lafarge, said, “We are proud of our history in Northern Ireland and remain committed to our regional operation. The cements we produce will still be local products made by local employees at our Cookstown plant.

“Equally, we are proud to be a part of Aggregate Industries, and parent company, LafargeHolcim. The support from 115,000 colleagues across the world will allow us to maintain an excellent local service but with the expertise and innovation that comes with a world leading construction materials supplier.”

Products featuring the new packaging will be available from the Cookstown Plant from January 2016 and can be ordered via your local builder’s merchant.
