Cemex have opened two new concrete plants, investing £3.4m
The new plants, at Stepney, east London, and Oldbury, Birmingham, replace existing plants which are over 40 years old.
The Stepney plant can produce 180cu m of concrete per hour and both plants will reuse water from the concrete process and feature a reclaim system that reuses any waste cement, gravel and sand.
Chris Leese, vice-president for readymix and mortars at Cemex, said: “These new production facilities replace plants that have been in operation for over 40 years.
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.”
