BMF Young Merchants Visit to Lagan Products

Lagan Products hosted this year's annual Builders Merchant Federation Young Merchant Group supplier Trip.

Members of the Group visited Lagan Tile Works in Lisburn, Co Antrim on the first day of their trip.

The BMF Young Merchants Group is made up of builders merchants and suppliers who are under 40 years old, to help promote our fantastic industry to the next generation.  The annual supplier trip was hosted by Lagan Products this year and included a visit to the Roof Tile Plant and our Kinnegad Cement Plant, as well as some social activities mixed in.

The team were welcomed to Lagan Tile in Lisburn and given an introduction to Lagan Tile products as well as an update on Breedon Group.  Everyone then went on a tour of the plant to walk the process from starting out as raw materials, to the finished packaged product.

We also visited Haldane Fisher HQ in Newry where David Haldane met the team and discussed their journey as well as numerous recent developments.  We went on a site tour encompassing their branch and yard and timber processing plant before heading to Dublin.

 

Day 2 saw a visit to our Kinnegad Cement Works in Westmeath. The team were walked through the production process of cement before seeing it for real with a guided tour.  We then had a social event in the afternoon before taking the team to the famous Guinness Storehouse on Day 3 before everyone departed home.  

It was a pleasure to host the trip and great to see everyone getting involved in all aspects of the tours and social events!
