Opening ceremony at Hingston Down Quarry, Cornwall.
Key stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, councilors, local community and employees, were invited to the official opening of Hanson's new asphalt plant in Hingston Down Quarry. It was a great day, warm and sunny, where all participants were introduced to the new site and the new equipment. Apart from the new production unit, a new front loader had been purchased, as well as new offices and improved traffic routes on site.
The ceremony was introduced by Alan Murray, followed by speeches on strategy and vision by Todd Hannigan/Guy Edwards. Project details were presented by Phil Redmond. The guests were then guided around the site, with details of new plant being presented and questions answered.
Due to bad weather during the installation of the plant, KVM president Ole Munch handed over a weather forecast station to Quarry Manager Dave Jenkins, also praising the good working relationship between Hanson and KVM in his speech, throughout the project.
