On the 8th and 9th of October members of the O.C.O team manned a stand at the Concrete Expo NEC Birmingham which formed part of UK Construction week.

The show was very successful for our business with a footfall far higher than expected. Customers old and new visited us on the stand and it was a great platform to launch the rebranded Company.

With CO2 being such a hot topic at the moment, the team were kept busy answering questions from fellow members of the industry as well as the general public.

The show also gave the opportunity for Dr Peter Gunning (O.C.O’s Technical and Quality Manager) and Dave Olley (Aggregate Sales and Development Manager) to do a live presentation to an audience in the theatre area of the hall – including their well-known collapsing bottle experiment.

Throughout the day, visitors to the stand were encouraged to leave one of their business cards with us to be entered in a draw to win a bottle of Champagne. We are pleased to announce that Jonathan Dodd from Forticrete was the lucky winner!
