Aggregate Industries has announced that it has signed a £3m deal with Siemens as part of a new technology and training partnership that will see the pair deliver efficiencies, as well as maintenance savings, and substantially reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
This agreement positions Siemens as Aggregate Industries UK preferred technology supplier across the company’s 330 UK sites. Siemens technology solutions including inverter drives, gearboxes, motors, and control panels will be used to enhance operational efficiencies and help drive the company’s sustainability objectives, and support improved productivity.
The deal also includes a substantial commitment to supporting the development of the engineers of tomorrow. Siemens is providing access to training and education facilities for all Aggregate Industries apprentices within the learning environment at Stephenson College in Coalville, Leicestershire, near the company’s head office, following a substantial financial investment.
The focus on training will be supported regionally with Siemens supplying safety panels which are to be utilised for staff training sessions across Aggregate Industries’ regional site network.
Gerard Cantwell, Head of Procurement Europe at Aggregate Industries, added: “This agreement positions Siemens as our preferred UK technology supplier, ensuring that we benefit from enhanced operational efficiencies over the long-term. This will deliver cost savings and improve system reliability. The technology solutions we will install will also help us reach our sustainability goals, as we seek to reduce the impact we have on the environment.”
