Kilsaran acquires Cemex operating assets in Ireland
Kilsaran International have announced the acquisition of a number of major Cemex operating assets in the Republic of Ireland.
This positions Kilsaran as a national player in the Concrete, Blocks and Aggregates Business’ in Ireland and also supports continued growth in the Paving, Walling and Dry Products divisions of the company.
The acquisition, which will see Kilsaran expand its reach way beyond its Leinster origins, is a welcome addition to the company’s ever expanding geographic spread of plants and quarries nationwide.
Celebrating 50 years in business this year Kilsaran was founded in 1964 by the late Patrick McKeown in the village of Kilsaran in County Louth. Over the years Kilsaran International has grown considerably to become Ireland’s largest independent maker of a range of concrete products.
This family-owned and run business is quite literally Irish from the ground up, mining raw materials from its own quarries before making superior quality paving and walling, tarmac and asphalt materials, pre-mixed mortars, renders, screeds, external wall insulation and, of course, ready-mixed concrete and blocks at its own manufacturing facilities.
Kilsaran have secured ownership of Cemex plants in Cork, Tipperary, Limerick, Waterford, Wexford, Portlaoise, Ballinakill, Castletown, Duleek, and Dublin adding greatly to the existing portfolio. These additional locations expand the reach capabilities of the company from north Louth, across the midlands down to the entire south east and south west of the country. David McKeown, Sales Director of Kilsaran International has expressed the company’s delight at finally being able to spread both the production and supply capabilities of the company into these new geographic locations. Expansion in into these new areas also means an enhanced supply capacity for Kilsaran’s paving and dry products divisions. Kilsaran looks forward to working with new and old customers alike in the newly acquired plants over the coming months.
