Wagners CEO, Cameron Coleman said: “Wagners results for the financial year ending 30 June 2018 are in line with our expectations.


“We have experienced strong cement sales as a result of increased concrete consumption and increased activity in the renewable energy projects in South East Queensland. We have also seen significant improvement across the balance of the construction materials and services business compared to the previous financial year.


“During the year we have invested in our concrete strategy, haulage assets and expansion of quarry reserves and we expect to continue to invest in assets to enable our business to grow.


“We are excited by the opportunities that are presented for our New Generation Building Materials business both in CFT and EFC and we look forward to the delivery of our first pedestrian boardwalk in the United States later this year.”
