Associated British Ports is investing £500,000 in developing a new facility at its Port of Immingham, following a term agreement with Whitemountain Roadstone. The manufacturer will use the new facility as a manufacturing plant for hot-coated roadstone, which is produced from aggregates imported from Norway and Ireland and used primarily to service roads in Lincolnshire.
Whitemountain is investing more than £1M in equipment at the new facility, which will be developed subject to receiving planning permission. Paul Bichener, general manager of Whitemountain, says: “We look forward to working with ABP at the Port of Immingham for years to come. This new plant will be an integral part of our UK operation, and will enable us to grow our business.”
