Hanson has invested £2 million to upgrade its King’s Cross concrete plant, doubling capacity at the central London site.
The previous pair of two-metre Skako planetary mixers have been replaced with two four-metre models, which can produce up to 230 m3 of concrete an hour. The investment allows the team to supply key projects in the capital, including Thames Tideway and Google headquarters, as well as future contracts such as HS2. The new equipment has also improved efficiency.
“Our King’s Cross plant is located on a strategically placed railhead in the centre of London with all of our aggregate and cement requirements delivered by train from source, keeping over 8000 lorry movements a year off the roads,” said Hanson Concrete Managing Director, Brian Charleton.
“This investment allows the site to continue playing its part in helping to improve the local area by providing much-needed construction material to the capital in the most environmentally and safest manner possible.”
