Haulage and aggregate extraction firm The Cullimore Group is preparing a phased return to operations on 18 May. The company, which has five quarry sites across the South West, has been approached to supply cement mix for a major utilities project within the county of Gloucestershire, and has received demand for its aggregate products used in construction.
Managing director, Moreton Cullimore, said: “We will begin to deliver aggregates, sands, and gravels to construction sites and projects, and general public home building from 18 May. Ready-mixed concrete will also be available for delivery from our sites in Gloucester and Stroud.
“I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers for their patience, and to our employees who are keen and willing to come back to work at the appropriate time.”
Moreton stressed that employees will be under no pressure to return if they are medically shielding or in an at-risk group. He also reiterated that any deliveries will be carried out according to social distancing measures, as part of a phased, safe return to operations.
The Cullimore Group anticipates its site in Cirencester will return to operation from 26 May. The Group’s HGV servicing lane at its Whitminster site has also reopened.
He added: “The supply of construction material has been defined as essential by the Government and the safety of our employees remains of paramount importance to us.”
