GW Highways Tour Hanson UK

25 Apr 2023

The GW Highways team were delighted to spend a day on a tour of the Hanson UK Maidstone Asphalt Plant. Thank you to Gary Morgan and his great team for setting up the day and strengthening our partnership and knowledge of your asphalt plant!

Our Highways Director Luke Wenham said, “I was very impressed with the Alington Asphalt tour and the processes in place to deal with RAP to add into the asphalt mixes and the self-delivery of maintenance and parts on site to minimize down times”.

At GW Highways we are constantly evaluating our processes to provide better ways of working and more sustainable solutions for the sector, in keeping with our core values. Our relationship with Hanson UK strengthens our commitment to carbon neutrality, where they have already reduced their CO2 emissions in the UK by 50% since 1990 and are investing £55 million by 2025 to help cut this by a further 15%.

Hansons Regional Director, Gary Morgan said, “Hanson UK are extremely grateful to the GW Highways team for taking the time to visit the Allington asphalt plant to view how the production operation works, our focus on increasing the use of recycled materials and how we are reducing our CO2 emissions to achieve our target of Net Zero Carbon by 2050. Hanson is really excited to be working with GW Highways in the supply of sustainable asphalt products that utilize the latest low carbon technologies.”
