Ian Price has been appointed managing director of Hanson UK’s national road surfacing and contracting infrastructure business, Hanson Contracting.
He moves from his role as major projects manager with the business to replace Rick Green, who is now managing director of Hanson’s asphalt and quarrying business MQP (Midland Quarry Products).
Ian, who joined the company in 2002, is responsible for all commercial and operational aspects of Hanson Contracting, which has extensive experience of highways construction and asphalt surfacing works for Highways England, the Welsh Government, local authorities and private clients throughout the UK.
Since 2015 he has been project manager for the company’s award-winning partnership with Dorset Council, which delivered the £20 million A338 upgrade scheme and is now in its third term. He previously spent seven years as Hanson Contracting’s MoD manager, managing and delivering MoD works across central and southern England and Wales, and latterly was also contracting project manager for EDF Energy’s Hinkley Point C new nuclear power station in Somerset.
“This is an exciting opportunity and I am looking forward to being involved in shaping the future of the business,” said Ian.
“Health and safety remains a key priority along with driving innovation, customer service and our commitment to sustainability. These are all areas I am looking to build on moving forward.”
