Stornoway to Penzance: essential to local and national economies

The UK concrete sector is a progressive and innovative manufacturing industry. It is essential to delivering social and economic infrastructure and vital to the continued strength of local and national economies. 

The sector is a key part of a combined mineral products industry which contributes around £18bn to the UK’s GDP and directly employs 74,000 people, supporting a further 3.5m jobs.

 As concrete is in demand and available throughout the UK, it creates jobs and supports communities all over the country, from Stornoway to Penzance.

National and local economies could not function without concrete products which touch virtually every aspect of our lives in housing, schools, hospitals, roads, rail, power stations, ports and airports.
