Cement Works Tour – 30/01/14

Henry Boot Group Managing Director, Jamie Boot,  and representatives from Henry Boot Developments, Hallam Land Management and Henry Boot Construction, have braved the winter weather to conduct a visit around the Hope Cement Works.

The team was treated to an extensive tour of the facility, now owned by Hope Construction Materials, starting with a presentation of the history of the plant from its origins back in the 1920s through to the present day operation.

Once the appropriate PPE had been donned, the party was guided through the whole production process, with a visit to the quarry on the hill where they took the chance to climb aboard one of the huge Caterpillar loading shovels for a team photo! The tour then moved throughout the works itself, culminating in a lift ride to the top of the homogenising tower. Finally the party walked between the two (very hot) rotating kilns.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour around Hope Cement Works, and must give special thanks to Ashley Bryan and Darrell Matthews for being such wonderful guides. The visit proved to be fascinating and it was great to see the process first hand.”

Andy Atkinson, Eastern Region Commercial Manager, Henry Boot Construction
