Major investment programme at Supreme Concrete’s Sittingbourne factory to boost production, training and welfare.
Supreme Concrete, a business owned by Ibstock plc, is undertaking a programme of ‘significant investment’ at the company’s Sittingbourne factory. The investment will provide additional financial support for a programme of upgrades to legacy production machinery, as well as significant improvements to on-site staff welfare facilities, the business has announced.
As part of the company’s commitment to corporate and social responsibility (CSR), Supreme Concrete has also put in place a new and ongoing programme of training opportunities for its staff – with a particular focus on health and safety.
The investment at the Sittingbourne facility – which includes a new toilet block and refurbished mess-rooms – is intended to boost welfare infrastructure for staff.
Other projects, including a retrofit of the factory’s lighting to modern, efficient LED lighting technology. The company says the lighting upgrade has not only delivered energy savings and reducing its carbon footprint, but has resulted in a greatly-enhanced quality of light for factory staff; thus boosting wellbeing at work and contributing to a safer working environment.
Richard Davey, Commercial Operations Manager at Supreme Concrete, commented: “This investment gives us a much-needed boost right across the site – it makes us more efficient; and allows us to demonstrate an even greater commitment to developing the skills within our team.”
