Breedon Group acquires surfacing contractor

Breedon Group, the construction materials group, has acquired Phoenix Surfacing, a surfacing contractor based in the Midlands.

It follows the integration of Minster Surfacing, based in Lincoln, which Breedon acquired in 2023, as well as the 2022 acquisition of Thomas Bow Ltd, a surfacing and civil engineering contractor based in the East Midlands.

Founded in 1991, Phoenix has over 30 years of experience in the design and delivery of highways and infrastructure projects for both public and private sector clients. The business has grown into one of the Midlands’ leading independent surfacing contractors and merchanting businesses, with an annual turnover of £23m-£24m.

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.

“We look forward to leveraging the strengths of Phoenix and Breedon together, to enhance our overall capabilities and provide an excellent service for our customers.

“Since we founded Phoenix Surfacing in 1991, we have always focused on delivering the best customer service, supporting our people and growing our business, and Breedon is the perfect partner for us as we continue to deliver on these goals.”
