Technical support

Asphalt & Aggregates technical support

Hanson Asphalt and Hanson Aggregates operate regional technical teams across the North, Central and South of the UK. Our experienced, mobile quality control technicians visit sites to obtain test samples for our rigorous internal quality control system and are always on hand to offer professional advice.

All Hanson samples are tested at our national UKAS accredited laboratory in accordance with current European and British Standards under third party accreditation by CPC.

Test results are supplied to our national data centre where our advanced control systems are maintained autonomously from regional interference. Hanson are the only national company to operate in this manner which provides the highest possible level of data integrity.

Research into the latest technologies and product development is shared between the national laboratory and within the regions. Where necessary, Hanson can draw on the vast expertise and resources available at our parent company, Heidelberg cement’s technical centre, one of the largest facilities of its kind anywhere in the world.

We provide solutions for challenging construction projects with a proven track record of working with designers to provide value engineering.

In addition to asphalt and aggregates our UK technical facilities also cater for cement and concrete.

Cement technical support

Manufacturing cement of a consistently high quality is of tremendous importance to us. We regularly test the physical and chemical profile of our products at our works laboratories, and our specialist technical services department at Scunthorpe to ensure that our products meet the requirements of our customers and the appropriate British Standards.

In addition to our laboratory services, we have a team of three Technical Development Managers who work with customers on mix designs, concrete testing and other technical services.
