Aircrete Europe has been selected by Forterra Building Products, one of UK’s leading building materials groups, as its technology partner to execute a project at its existing AAC facility at Hams Hall (Birmingham, UK). The project was executed within envisaged budgets and time frames and was successfully commissioned in Q3 of 2018.

Stuart McQuillan, Head of Engineering at Forterra, commented: “For this complex assignment we were looking for a true technology partner, and not just an engineering firm or machine supplier. Through their in-house process know-how resulting from their involvement in their own plants in Latin America, combined with over 4 decades of engineering experience, Aircrete Europe was perfectly positioned to fulfil this role.”
