Red Stag Materials paving the potholes away for EZ Street
Red Stag Materials is run by of a dedicated team of industry professionals with over 90 years of experience in UK infrastructure and the highway maintenance sector. They are championing a new solution to the pothole backlog the is plaguing Britain, which amounts to over £11 billion, and could take 11 years to repair according to the Annual Local Authority Road Maintenance Survey (ALARM).
Keeping roads in workable condition is a vital but often overlooked contributor to the state of a nation’s economy. With this in mind, Red Stag are hoping that their latest product will aid local councils to maintain both their roads, and their budget.
EZ Street is a unique cold asphalt solution, that Red Stag Materials have acquired the exclusive UK rights to distribute. Offering a cost-effective alternative to traditional means of pothole repair, EZ Street requires no heavy plant to install, and can be bulk-bought and stored for up to 12 months.
Additionally, EZ Street is significantly faster to install and Red Stag Materials have brought the product to the UK confident that it will translate to significant savings in manhours for local councils that use the product.
As Red Stag begins to roll out EZ Street across the UK, they also have begun actively creating and looking to expand their network of distributors to assist in making EZ Street available to everyone who may require it.
Grant Shewan, Managing Director of Red Stag Materials commented “Red Stag was founded in 2018, after my fellow directors and I noticed a significant lack of high-quality alternatives to traditional road repair products.”
“We wanted to provide something that offers a higher quality and less expensive alternative, but crucially, one that’s also greener and more sustainable as well.”
“We secured the exclusive UK rights to EZ Street, which gives us the tremendous opportunity to offer local authorities as well as private companies an efficient alternative to traditional hot asphalt materials.”
“Despite the product being new to the UK, it has a tried and trusted history in America, Canada and Australia, where it has become a staple product in both the private and public sector”
“EZ Street is unique in that it substitutes the diesel found in many cold asphalt solutions, with bio-fuel, making it more sustainable and less fossil fuel reliant.”
“Red Stag Materials are confident that our products and methodology will be similarly embraced in the UK and are excited to work with local authorities to help them get the best results out of our products and our experience.”
Due to how easy it is to store and stockpile EZ Street, Red Stag Materials have been able to assist local governments across the UK during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The company has been able to supply local government with over 200 tonnes of EZ Street Asphalt, transported across the company to meet the needs of councils and local authorities.
Red Stag are now distributing EZ Street across the UK and overseas as far as the Middle East.
Testimonal from Bolton Council:-
At Bolton Council we have tried all the bagged/bucketed pothole solutions over the years and the one product we return to time and time again is the EZStreet Asphalt, we use primarily for ironwork reinstatements – lasts exceptionally well – three years on a slip road onto our busiest road, even hot rolled is falling around manholes on this road quicker than the EZStreet did. We also use it for out of hours emergency potholing it is very good, we have used EZStreet Asphalt for four years and I order a couple of Tonnes at a time lasting us around six months.
