Natalie Wood (Commercial Development Manager Aggregates Home Counties) was approached by the head keeper from Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne Hertfordshire, and asked to source a stone free, free-draining sand to use in the camel enclosure. The Aggregates team were able to source a high-quality silica sand, which was factored in from LB silica in Leighton Buzzard. Factoring has made this possible as CEMEX do not supply a suitable product. It is a fantastic example of us being able to source exactly what the customer requires.
CEMEX delivered the material last week and has since received a photo and message below of the camels enjoying their new sand. CEMEX will also be supplying the same material for their zebra enclosure.
“Hi, I just wanted to thank you for the delivery of sand yesterday.
We have started to move the sand into the camel paddock, and I thought you may like to see that our three camels have approved the sand. Straight on to it as soon as we were laying it!”
