Why volumetric concrete?

Our mobile batching plants are what are known as a volumetric concrete mixers—specialist vehicles that arrive on site with all the ingredients required to mix almost any type and grade of concrete. There are many advantages to supplying concrete in this way, most notably that due to the concrete being mixed on site, you can never under or over order. This means you pay only for what you lay, from 1m3 to a full load. As such, volumetric concrete proves to be extremely economical and the lack of waste material is also better for the environment.

We can even supply different grades of concrete from the same vehicle, on the same job, and when working on large-scale works we can deploy two vehicles working in relay to ensure an almost continuous pour where the project demands it.
