Gallagher Group, the construction and materials business owned by Leitrim businessman Pat Gallagher, has bought five Kent-based readymix cement plants from Cemex UK.

The purchase price was not disclosed, but managing director of the firm’s aggregates division Sean Connor said that the acquisition would see up to £15m (€17.5m) invested in the plants, double production capacity, and add at least 30 employees to the existing workforce of 500, as the turnover of Gallagher’s entire business approaches £200m.
