CEMEX UK Scoops Construction News Supply Chain Excellence Award

12 July 2013

CEMEX UK scooped the Supply Chain Excellence of the Year award at the 2013 Construction News Awards last night. 

The award was for a joint venture contract with Aggregate Industries on the A1 Dishforth to Leeming.  Two companies that are more used to competing against one another than working together co-operated to use all of their local resources to deliver  more than 2.2m tonnes of aggregate and 600,000 tonnes of asphalt to the project. 

The Judges’ commented: "The level of integration between CEMEX, Aggregate Industries, their customer Carillion/Morgan Sindall, local hauliers and a local independent quarrying firm is almost unprecedented.  

They went on to say:  “This is a great example of two companies who would normally be in fierce competition coming together to deliver a project that demonstrates effective integration of the supply chain, with a focus on health and safety, process innovation and demonstrable improvements in results.  

“The level of cooperation between CEMEX and Aggregate Industries even saw the partners controlling each other’s operations and resources, with a CEMEX representative managing the JV’s drystone resources and an Aggregate Industries representative managing the JV’s collective coated stone resources.”  

Last night around 1200 of the industry’s finest attended the highly anticipated 2013 Construction News awards held at the Grosvenor House Hotel London . 

This year Construction News received a record number of entries which once again excelled in quality.  The esteemed judging panel – made up of 57 big-name clients, consultants, contractors and representatives of government and industry bodies – had tough decisions to make.   

Finalists presented their entries to the judges face to face, giving them the chance to convey their passion in person – and ensuring these are the most rigorous awards in construction.   

Rebecca Evans, Editor, Construction News commented:
