Holcim acquires Wiltshire


The regional UK leader in recycling construction & demolition waste into green building materials, Wiltshire Heavy Building Materials Accelerating, has been acquired by Holcim. 

Holcim has acquired Wiltshire Heavy Building Materials (Wiltshire), one of the leading building solutions and material circularity companies in the UK, with net sales of over 20 million in 2021.

The acquisition serves to better the reach that Holcim has in the English market and provide greater support to the construction material industry.

Driving circular construction, Wiltshire recycles 150,000 tons of construction & demolition waste each year into aggregates and concrete with its state-of-the art material recovery system.

Speaking on the acquisition of Wiltshire, Miljan Gutovic, region head of Europe, The Middle East and Africa for Holcim, explained the benefits the expansion of Holcim has.

“I am excited about the acquisition of Wiltshire, to advance our global goal of recycling 10 million tons of construction & demolition waste by 2025,” Gutovic said.

“Within Holcim, our UK market is at the forefront of circular construction, building new from the old with products like ECOPact+, our green concrete with recycled aggregates inside. I warmly welcome all of Wiltshire’s employees into the Holcim family to unleash our next chapter of green growth together.”

Wiltshire Heavy Building Materials was founded over thirty years ago and employs 80 people today. The company serves a strong customer base through sites in Devizes, Theale, Faringdon and Fairford, expanding Holcim’s Aggregate Industries footprint between London and Southwest England.

Wiltshire adds to Holcim’s expertise in circular construction while strengthening its position in innovative and sustainable building solutions in the UK.
