Ed Reed

Ed Reed has over 40 years of experience in the aggregates and process engineering industries. His key strength is driving up efficiency and has yet to find a quarry he has not been able to improve.

With a colleague, Ed was involved in the creation and eventual sale of a specialist high PSV business. He was also the managing director of a £100m aggregate, asphalt and concrete business

Ed is currently the non-executive director of a materials and mechanical handling engineering company, which designs and builds aggregate processing plants in the UK and overseas. The company specialises in creating plant process designs that maximise high-value production and minimise the production of lower-value materials. A particular feature of these plants is the minimum total lifetime cost of operation.
