A long-term partnership between Maccaferri and Acheson & Glover (AG)to promote specialist segmental retaining walls throughout the UK and Ireland has fuelled year-on-year sales growth of MacWall of around 75%.
Under the agreement, launched six months ago, AG manufactures Anchor Diamond, Anchor Vertica and Anchor Landmark products for use in engineered walls. Maccaferri now acts as sole-distributor for these products in Ireland and the UK, supplying them under the MacWall brand with their market-leading Paragrid geogrid reinforcement and providing customers with unrivalled engineering and design support. In certain markets, construction services are available for clients who require a design, supply and install service.
Steve Miller, Maccaferri UK & Ireland Managing Director stated “Both companies entered the partnership agreement with a view to significantly growing sales for these products in both the UK and Ireland. We believe the sales performance in recent months is a true vindication of the decision to work closely together and we are ideally positioned to take full advantage of improving market conditions.”
By choosing to work together in a formal partnership, AG and Maccaferri now offer an unrivalled package of segmental retaining wall solutions, with market-leading product quality, design support and expertise. We are delighted that the engineered components for the wall systems are made in the UK with blocks made in AG’s state-of-the-art facilities in Fivemiletown and Paragrid made in Yorkshire. This increases our local economies and reduces the carbon footprint of our solution compared to other systems made elsewhere in the world.”
From offices in Oxford, Scotland, Belfast and Dublin, and supported by an in-house team of Geotechnical and Geosynthetic Specialists and Civil Engineers, Maccaferri offers an unrivalled product range to the construction industry throughout the UK and Ireland.
