£1million has been invested by CEMEX UK in a new concrete plant at an existing site in Elland Road, Leeds.
The old plant was demolished in January 2015. The new plant is a Parker Universal plant built in Leicester and can batch 6 cubic metres in around 4 minutes.
Craig Williamson, Regional Director Readymix Northern and Scotland commented, “The new plant has a simple and logical layout, and is well engineered. So for example, there is overhead storage for 500 t of aggregates enabling it to go directly from the storage into the mixing area. We also have large silos for storing the cement so the tanker can make one delivery at night, an environmental saving on transport.”
The old plant was built in 1952, and produced over 3.5million t of concrete which has gone into local buildings and infrastructure.
