Success rises from the ashes.

RUGBY Cement is investing pounds 4 million over the next 12 months into developing its ash business, which it has integrated with its cement business in the past six months.

Building work will begin next month on a new blending plant at Powergen's Radcliffe site near Nottingham.

The contract is the latest in a string of civil engineering and construction projects, following work on the Channel tunnel rail link, Jubilee Line extension, Canary Wharf development, the Birmingham Northern Relief Road and Heathrow Airport's new Terminal 5.

Pulverised fuel ash (Part 1 PFA) is used as a cement replacement.

Rugby managing director Stephen Eastwood said: "Rugby is committed to growing the market for Part 1 PFA - a product which has been hugely successful for us, but which we have been slow to shout about. This investment will help us to build on our success to date, improve the quality of our supply and provide more customers with the quality of product and service they have come to expect from Rugby."

He added: "It has always been our intention to develop the ash side of the business, and we are delighted to have the agreement of our parent company, RMC Group."
