The £2.2 million Stepney plant is able to produce more than 180 cubic metres of concrete per hour.
Its twin mixer units – which are capable of producing the higher strength concretes that are increasingly in demand – have built-in ‘recyclers’ to significantly reduce waste disposal.
The £1.2 million Oldbury facility includes a full reclaim system, which reduces the ongoing costs of the plant by ensuring that all cement, gravel and sand is reused. The system also eliminates the need to send waste materials to landfill.
Vice president for readymix and mortars Chris Leese said: “Although the building and housing market is going through a tough time construction activity continues and our customers are demanding high quality products delivered on time – these plants help us to achieve those requirements as well as operating in a more sustainable way.”
