The company has had close links with Rugby for nearly 150 years and today operates one of the most modern cement plants in the world located in the town. The new HQ was the former global head offices for the Rugby Group plc until 2000 and today, the legacy of the company is continued with the brand, Rugby Cement, one of most well-known brands in the industry.
To date the Rugby offices have provided a regional centre for the company. From the 1st July the senior leadership team and all back-office functions such as Taxation, Communications and Human Resources will be based at Rugby, working alongside business areas such as the National Customer Service Centre, Marketing and Logistics.
“Rugby lies geographically at the centre of our UK business and with changing patterns of working such as increased working from home and from operational sites, it makes good business sense to consolidate our offices. Rugby and the Rugby brand are at the ‘heart’ of our business and the creation of the new headquarters will ensure greater efficiency and communication,” comments Michel Andre, Country President, CEMEX UK.
