Cemex's £2m London concrete plant

Building materials supplier Cemex is investing £2.2 million investment in a new state-of-the art concrete plant off Butchers Row, Stepney in East London.

The investment will ensure that the existing plant is replaced by a new plant with the highest output in the UK, producing some 180 cubic metres an hour, enough to fill two double decker buses.

The Stepney concrete plant has been in operation since 1960s and during its operational ‘life’ has produced over 4 million cubic metres of ready mixed concrete and used in the Wembley Stadium and Canary Wharf and St Katherine’s Docks projects.

The new plant will have the the facility for out-of-hours cement and aggregates deliveries to ease congestion, and two concrete ‘recyclers’ to reduce waste disposal and recycle surface water in the concrete mixes.
