FM Conway has officially opened its Asphalt Plant in Erith supplying surfacing materials across the country.
A jetty at the plant takes delivery of aggregates by ship to reduce the number of lorry movements in London by 15,000 a year.
Conway’s asphalt plant at Erith is the most energy efficient facility of its kind in the UK and has become the busiest single asphalt plant in the country.
Michael Conway (pictured) , Chief Executive Officer for FM Conway, said: “This asphalt plant is the realisation of our goal to become a truly integrated service provider.”
In 15 months of operation the plant has so far produced more than 450,000 tonnes of asphalt.
The material produced has paved roads from Piccadilly to Peterborough and been used for schools, hospitals, dockyards, rail depots, supermarket car parks and areas of the Olympic Park.
