The Port of Cardiff has signed a new long-term lease with Stone Supplies Ltd, a leading Welsh supplier of bulk aggregates, sand and decorative stone.
The lease relates to an open storage yard of one acre, located on Rover Way, next to the South Side Roath Dock terminal at the Port of Cardiff, which is owned and operated by Associated British Ports (ABP).
“When sourcing a site for our new bagging and concrete operation, location was paramount. The site at Cardiff Port offers unrivalled transport links, providing a key logistical position that will allow Stone Supplies (Wales) Ltd, to build on our current customer base and further expand our aggregate bagging and ready-mix concrete operation throughout South Wales,” said Martyn Christopher, managing director at Stone Supplies Ltd, which is part of the family-run Ty Carreg Group.
“ABP’s professionalism and swiftness in facilitating the lease during these difficult times has enabled us to continue moving the business forward. We look forward to working with them, over the coming years.”
ABP said that, since February 2020, it has invested to improve its customer offering in Cardiff. Recent enhancements include resurfacing areas and installing new accesses and utilities such as power and water. Following the completion of the works, Stone Supplies has taken the new lease to facilitate its expansion plans and help it service its clients.
Liam Slater, ABP surveyor for Wales and Short Sea Ports, said: “We are pleased that Stone Supplies has chosen the Port of Cardiff to support their growing business and we look forward to working together in future.”
