Tarmac, the UK’s leading building materials and construction solutions business, has announced that Griffiths; a successful and well-respected regional construction and surfacing business operating across Wales, the Midlands and South West England, has become part of their Contracting business.
The company will continue to operate under the Griffiths name. Tarmac and the Griffiths management teams will ensure business as usual for existing Griffiths customers.
Combining the expertise of both businesses, the acquisition strengthens Tarmac’s overall civils and highways customer offer in key markets, and builds upon its existing network of strategic sites, logistics and operations. Griffiths’ principal sectors of expertise include highways and bridges, rail, utilities, surfacing, integrated transport, urban regeneration, highway maintenance and water management. They directly employ their own workforce and have an extensive plant fleet. Their 700 employees operate out of six regional offices across Wales, the Midlands and South West England.
Griffiths works with key clients in their operating areas. They have delivered major projects, including A483 Newtown Bypass, South Bristol Link, Llanaber/Barmouth Sea Defences and numerous M4 projects.
