WCL Quarries Expands into 55 Acre Ketley Quarry
WCL Quarries, one of the leading independent suppliers of aggregates, waste and recycling services in the midlands has expanded its business operations with the opening of a new 55 acre site in Kingswinford.
The new site, located on the Dudley Road in Kingswinford, called Ketley Quarry opened for business in March. WCL Quarries Managing Director Simon Winner Comments, “Ketley Quarry is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the team here at WCL Quarries. We’ve worked closely with local authorities and organisations to ensure we get all the right permissions and permits in place to provide the first class service and product offering that has put us in the position we are in today to start working on this new site. These are exciting times here at WCL Quarries and I’m really pleased for all involved that all the hard work has given us the result we wanted to take this business forward.”
The expansion into Ketley Quarry, sees WCL Quarries become one of the largest independent aggregate, waste and recycling operations in the midlands.
The product and service offering between the two sites will remain largely the same, with WCL Quarries offering a comprehensive supply of Sand, recycled and quarried aggregates and a waste and recycling operation for inert waste. Engineering clay, available in abundance at Ketley Quarry, will also be added to the company’s product line up. Simon Winner Comments, “In the past people have been amazed at the range of services we have been able to offer from a single site and the logistical savings this can mean to their business, with this new site we will take the same formula, replicating and scaling it up to work with the capacity we now have at Ketley.”
One thing that will remain the same is how the business operates, Simon Winner continues, “Customers come to WCL Quarries because we know the industry they work in, and it’s this experience and partnership they value. The larger capacity and coverage we now have as a business means it is more important than ever for us to maintain and even improve the levels of service and expertise we provide to the people and businesses we work with on a daily basis.”
“The expansion into Ketley Quarry will create a greater business capacity, meaning investment in new equipment, infrastructure and ultimately the local area by creating opportunities for people and businesses to work with WCL Quarries. In the long term we are committed to rehabilitating the site, which will benefit the local community for generations to come.”
