Mark, a civil engineer, brings over 40 years of experience to the business and will support Fortis through its next phase of growth.
Mark Oliver’s appointment comes after a recent period of expansion and substantial investment, including the development of a brand-new state-of-the-art processing facility at Ridham in Kent and technical development of the range of Fortistone® IBA Aggregate (Fortistone®). As an example, the Fortistone® Type1 is fully compliant with the SHW 803 and can be widely used as a high performing sub-base in the construction of roads, footpaths, structural platforms and car parks.
Mark has had a long career in the building products industry, most recently as CEO of The Clarison Group. He has also been a member of the Government Green Construction Board and served on the steering committee for precast concrete of the Mineral Products Association (MPA). His experience and knowledge, together with his past involvement in the successful development of aircrete building products, will be invaluable as IBA Aggregate provides increasing volumes of sustainable, low carbon and low-cost product to the construction industry.
