Holcim acquires circular construction boost

A business handshake

Holcim has boosted its capabilities in circular construction with the acquisition of Land Recovery in the UK.

Land Recovery supplies both primary and recycled materials. It turns rail ballast into new solutions for the UK rail network. The company also supplies construction demolition materials for the production of ready-mix precast concrete and asphalt.

The acquisition expands Holcim’s access to construction demolition materials, with Land Recovery recycling more than 300,000 tonnes last year.

Miljan Gutovic, chief executive of Holcim, said: “Land Recovery strengthens Holcim’s leading position in circular construction, and advances our group target of recycling 10m tonnes of construction demolition materials in 2024. I look forward to welcoming all 85 employees of Land Recovery and investing in our next era of growth together.”

Land Recovery was founded in 1982 by the Beecroft family. With four facilities across the UK as well as 85 employees, Land Recovery’s services include the supply of primary rail ballast, handling and treating spent ballast and recycling it into new building solutions.

The transaction follows Holcim’s acquisition last year of Sivyer Logistics, a leading producer of recycled construction demolition materials for the London construction market.
