Cemex bagged cement contract win for Wincanton

Cemex, ready-mixed concrete provider, has awarded a new three-year national distribution contract to Wincanton.

The supply chain specialist already works with Cemex, which employs over 3,000 people in the UK, delivering building products and packed aggregates to construction sites across the country.

This new contract means Wincanton is now responsible for both the planning and transport of bagged cement to UK construction sites, retailers and wholesalers.

It will do this from Cemex's production facility in Rugby, Warwickshire, where the cement is produced, bagged and put onto pallets ready for distribution.

In all Wincanton will distribute some 15,000 loads per year across the UK utilising a core fleet of Cemex-branded vehicles.

Craig Williamson, Cemex's director of supply chain and logistics, said: "When looking for a business partner we have to be 100 per cent sure that they can be trusted to deliver.

"Over 80 years Cemex has built an enviable reputation in the construction industry for both the quality of our product and, crucially, our reliability in getting that product delivered.

"For many years Wincanton has provided us with an excellent service on our building products and packed aggregates and we have no doubts about its capabilities to replicate that success with our bagged materials and ensure that we continue to meet our customer service promise."

Commenting on the announcement, Wincanton's contract logistics managing director contract for manufacturing, Chris Kingshott said: "We have worked closely with Cemex since 2007, and in that time have demonstrated our ability to exceed expectations and add value to the partnership.

"I'm delighted to announce we are building on that good relationship with one of the most respected brands in the construction industry."
