Essential materials

Breedon is a leading vertically-integrated construction materials group in Great Britain, Ireland and the USA.

We supply the construction industry with the essential materials needed to build the places where we live and work, play and in-between.

We use our core assets to produce valued-added downstream products, pulling through our aggregates and cement to deliver asphalt, ready-mixed concrete and surfacing solutions to the whole construction supply chain.

We are supplying structurally attractive markets

We are a leading heavyside construction materials supplier in Great Britain and Ireland where we benefit from increasing Government infrastructure spending plans and robust residential and building markets. Our products are used to build essential economic and social assets in structurally attractive end-markets with broad Government support and long-term pipelines. 

Great Britain

In Great Britain we operate an extensive nationwide network of quarries and downstream operations, extending from Stornoway in the Hebrides to Hampshire in the south of England.

Our vertically-integrated downstream operations are asset-backed by substantial mineral reserves and resources and supported by a nationwide fleet of delivery vehicles for all products. Our surfacing business delivers surfacing for both minor and major infrastructure projects, utilising our asphalt and aggregate outputs.

In combination, our strong reserve base and fully vertically integrated operations yield economies of scale. Our highly localised sales and distribution model, serving a diverse range of customers, reflects the nature of our products and enables agile commercial decision-making.

The Great Britain market remains highly fragmented and we are well positioned to secure further acquisitions to extend our geographic and product portfolio.


Our network of quarries and downstream operations runs alongside a significant and highly regarded surfacing business.

We undertake surfacing as well as major infrastructure and highway maintenance contracts throughout Ireland. Our network of quarries, asphalt and ready-mixed concrete plants is growing to meet the demand from our downstream operations.

The division has well-established positions across the Island of Ireland with strong growth prospects.

The business has an excellent surfacing track record, including specialist expertise in airport runway surfacing and has recently completed the prestigious Cork Airport runway project.


Our cement division operates two well-invested plants in GB and Ireland, capable of producing more than two million tonnes of cement annually.

The Hope cement plant is the UK’s largest by capacity and has maintained more than 97% reliability for the past three years. The Kinnegad plant near Dublin is one of the most modern in Europe and is powered by 75% alternative fuels.

The Hope business operates a network of four import/export terminals, a major bagging plant outside London and a rail-linked distribution network with more than a million tonnes of throughput capacity.

We complement flexible bulk supply with higher-margin bagged products distributed to markets in GB and Ireland, coupled with cementitious import capacity. The rail links from Hope to regional depots help to reduce distribution costs and environmental impacts.

Creating sustainable value over the long-term

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our purpose – to make a material difference to the lives of our colleagues, customers and communities, and our products play an essential part in creating a sustainable built environment for everyone.
