Builders’ merchants can now order mixed loads of Hanson’s packed building products.
The move is part of the company’s development of the range which includes packed low CO2 cement, concrete, plaster, render, base and decorative aggregates.
“Our mixed load offer will make stock holding more efficient for merchants as it allows them to order a wider range of our products in smaller quantities,” said Paul Lacey, Hanson UK’s national marketing manager.
In addition, the cement range packaging has been updated and improved and merchants now have one point of contact to order all packed product items.
Paul Lacey explains: “Last autumn we brought together Castle Cement, Civil & Marine and our packed products division to form Hanson Cement.
“Since then we have been looking to give our packed building products range a new look. All the packaging now has strong Hanson branding to help demonstrate the breadth of products we offer.
“The iconic red Castle turret remains an integral part of the cement packaging and the whole range now contains key information about uses, mixing instructions and storage.”
In addition to the re-branding, Hanson’s general purpose cement has been improved to give it a higher strength of 42.5 Newtons.
