Our Clients & Partners
More Than 25 Year Experience in the Concrete Industry
Originally headquartered at Cotes Park Industrial Estate in Alfreton, following the housing price slump of 2007 and consequent recession, the company came under financial pressure and needed to secure investment in order to diversify to become less reliant on traditional markets.
In 2015, and in line with this diversification strategy, Hughes Armstrong Industries LP acquired Amber Precast with a view to expanding capabilities and skills and diversifying into new and related markets to realise more profitable work. To drive this change, a new division – Special Projects – was established. It spearheaded new, high quality, extreme environment markets where regulatory compliance was paramount.
The Special Projects division was located at the old Davy Markham facilities in Sheffield and, shortly after launch, it secured its first new market contract for the development of a Prototype 6m3 Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) to house Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste (ILW) from decommissioned nuclear power stations.
Amber Precast went on to excel in this new market securing further contracts. Hughes Armstrong Industries LP then sold off the original business in Alfreton (December 2019) to further develop the new extreme environment precast concrete market.
Amber Precast is now based at the heavy engineering facility in Sheffield. We are proud to supply customers not only in the UK but worldwide in countries such as Canada, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy and Czech Republic.
