CELEBRATING 90 YEARS

 

Last year we celebrated 90 years of cement making at Hope. Today the works is an intrinsic part of the lives, communities and landscape of the Hope Valley. Read about the history, the people and the process in our special anniversary magazine.

 

HOPE CEMENT WORKS AT A GLANCE

 

Hope has the capacity to make around 1.5 million tonnes of cement each year

Our cement is vital for UK construction - from homes and hospitals to railways and regeneration

Over 200 people work at Hope in a variety of jobs. Most live within a few miles of the site

Studies show the works contributes over £60 million to the local economy every year

Our cement is made with local limestone and shale blended with imported shale substitutes

Up to half the fuel used in Hope's kilns comes from wastes that may otherwise go to landfill

Two thirds of our cement is transported via the rail network, reducing lorry movements

Hope has won awards for quarry restoration, creating places for leisure and havens for wildlife

We have a long history of quality products, environmental performance and community relations
