Breedon snaps up third road surfacing contractor

Materials supplier Breedon has bought Midlands road surfacing contractor Phoenix as it continues to build up its Surfacing Solutions operation.

The latest deal follows the successful integration of Minster Surfacing last year, and the 2022 acquisition of Thomas Bow, a surfacing and civil engineering contractor based in the East Midlands.

With a £24m annual turnover, Phoenix Surfacing brings over 30 years of experience in the design and delivery of highways and infrastructure projects.

James Haluch, managing director of Surfacing Solutions at Breedon, said: “We are delighted to welcome Phoenix to the Breedon team as we continue to focus on expanding our Surfacing Solutions business’ geographic footprint and offer for our clients.

“Phoenix Surfacing has built up a huge amount of experience over the course of its history and has an outstanding delivery team. The combination of our businesses will significantly enhance our offer in the Midlands, while also strengthening our regional surfacing, airfields and recycled asphalt capabilities across the Breedon group.”

Alistair Lauder, managing director of Phoenix Surfacing, said: “This is a significant milestone in our company’s history, and we are excited about the opportunities the transaction will bring to our customers and colleagues.”
