FP McCann has further strengthened its precast concrete arm with the acquisition of Buchan Concrete Products.
Buchan is known for its range of concrete products, which are utilised on large-scale civil engineering projects and building schemes including schools, hotels, and university student accommodation. FP McCann has purchased its operations in Byley, Cheshire and Drakelow, Staffordshire.
CV Buchan, as the company was originally known in the 1930’s, was established as an engineering contractor. Over the years, the company developed into a manufacturer of precast concrete products in the civil engineering market supplying both the UK and overseas contracts, but with the growth in off-site modular construction, the company responded by targeting the building sector and today most of the company’s activity is in this area.
Other Buchan precast concrete products that will compliment the FP McCann range include utility pits, ground beams, dock leveller pits, walls and a variety of reinforced concrete walling systems.
As part of the acquisition, approximately 300 Buchan Concrete Products employees will also join FP McCann with immediate effect.
