Bringing The Desert To Broxbourne

Bringing The Desert To Broxbourne

September 05, 2019
The Aggregates team have been helping some exotic customers recently as part of efforts to increase factored sales.

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!”
