Open for Business: Cullimore Group heading back out on the road

Moreton Cullimore

Cullimore trucks are set to become a familiar site on Gloucestershire's roads once again as the haulage and aggregate extraction firm prepares for a phased return to work.

The Cullimore Group's HGV servicing lane at its Whitminster base has reopened ahead of operations restarting on May 18.

The company, which has five quarry sites across the South West, has been approached to supply cement mix for a major utilities project within the county and has demand for its aggregate products used in construction.

Managing director Moreton Cullimore said: "We will begin to deliver aggregates, sands and gravels to construction sites and projects, plus general public home building from May 18.

"Ready-mixed concrete will also be available for delivery from our sites in Gloucester and Stroud.

"I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers for their patience, and to our employees who are keen and willing to come back to work at the appropriate time."

Mr Cullimore stressed employees will be under no pressure to return if they are medically shielding or in an at-risk group.

And he reiterated that any deliveries will be carried out according to social distancing measures, as part of a phased, safe return to operations.

He added: "The supply of construction material has been defined as essential by the Government and the safety of our employees remains of paramount importance to us."

The company expects its site in Cirencester will return to operation from May 26.

The Cullimore Group of Companies was established in 1927 and is a leading supplier of transport and general haulage services to Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire and Avon & Somerset.
