B&B Attachments helps improve performance and productivity at Aggregate Industries

Aggregate Industries quarries, manufactures and supplies a wide range of heavy building materials including high quality aggregates, specialist sand, gravel and recycled/secondary aggregates to the construction industry, operating across the UK, the Channel Islands and Northern Europe with over 60 quarrying plants.

The company has grown through a series of acquisitions over the last 30 years. Its Northumberland-based plant manufactures various block, flag and block paving products and supplies concrete blocks for use in a variety of projects – from single storey housing to multi-storey developments and commercial buildings.

The construction industry is a demanding one and the task of moving bricks and blocks on site can be a time consuming business. To assist with the complex task of moving bricks and blocks on site B&B Attachments, the UK’s leading supplier of forklift truck attachments, has supplied Aggregate Industries’ Ashington plant with the specially designed BlockMaster WR400T Double Overhead Block Clamp.
