Lafarge buys Port Land Cement

French cement giant Lafarge has snapped up Kent-based independent Port Land Cement for an undisclosed sum.
Port Land was set up by managing director Robert Lee less than three years ago and imports around 10,000 tonnes of cement a month through its dock at Ridham, near Sittingbourne.

The acquisition follows Lafarge's purchase of Castle Cement's West Thurrock import terminal in Essex in June.

Lafarge is looking to increase import capacity for cement from Europe.
