The term ‘conglomerate’ may refer to a rock that contains gravel or cobble size material within a finer grained matrix. Ref The HS2 London-West Midlands Environmental Statement, published by the Department for Transport in November 2013.
It may also refer a parent company that has subsidiary companies trading in unrelated markets. Conglomerates have a legal identity separate from the subsidiaries, but are generally liable for the debts of subsidiary companies. For more information see: Types of construction organisations.
