Anderton: a UK manufacturer at the heart of sustainability and innovation

Anderton Concrete has a wealth of experiencing in supplying cable troughing and associated products to the industry for over 20 years. National sales manager Neil Cross will be taking delegates through the supply of carbon efficient products, innovative products, Anderton’s responsibilities as a manufacturer regarding sustainability and its environmental awareness that challenges the perception of the industry.

Neil Cross, Anderton Concrete.

Anderton’s ‘Eco’ trough and its precast capabilities will be highlighted as two areas in which innovation has come to the fore and where Anderton has worked closely with its customer base to provide solutions.

The rail industry has embraced the need for carbon reduction and understands that rail travel is among the most efficient and lowest emitting modes of transport. All those involved in the industry have a part to play in this – Anderton is no exception and will look to explain how it is tackling this issue.

As part of the Ibstock group, Anderton has been able to procure 100 per cent of its energy from renewable sources. This is one example of how Anderton has understood its responsibilities as a manufacturer and will explain why it has ambitions to be the most sustainable manufacturer of concrete products in the UK, concentrating on the four areas of customers & suppliers, environment, people and communities.

More information can be obtained on Anderton’s stand – N37 in hall 11.
