Materials Innovation

FM Conway is committed to driving materials innovation.

We aim to develop our materials portfolio to deliver sustainable solutions to meet the evolving needs of the construction industry.

As the first asphalt manufacturer in the UK to operate its own Polymer Modified Bitumen (PMB) plant we can develop and produce high-quality bituminous materials. 

Our UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratories carry out testing of concrete, aggregates, bitumen, bituminous mixtures and road pavement cores. This ensures our asphalt, concrete and aggregate products meet industry quality and performance standards.

The research and development section work with leading industry bodies and universities to pioneer new products and produce bespoke mixes for specific requirements.

It’s an exciting time to be working in the highways sector. There are challenges on the horizon but opportunities too.
