New concrete innovation Porofoam arrives in London

Published by
World Cement,

Following total collaboration and support from the Cemex National Technical team, the RMX London team successfully supplied PoroFoam 1500 as a foamed concrete solution to Getjar LTD at Aldgate Place.

“This would historically be a referral to a specialist company,” commented Steven Barakeh, Sales Rep; “However following some in-depth discussions between us and the customer our National Technical team were able to offer a solution. The concrete was supplied from Stepney plant and foamed before being delivered to site. This solution was a tough call to make since Stepney is currently the busiest Plant in London, and Health & Safety was our top priority, followed by the risk of contamination with concrete to a major slip form project at Canary Wharf for Byrne Bros. We successfully completed the task with no hiccups and the customer was very pleased with this solution. Special thanks to Mike Higgins, Kevin D’Souza and all of the London Operations team involved.”
