Cemex Valuemix, a Cemex brand, was established just over a year ago, setting itself apart from its competitors by being the first UK company in the North West to ensure that its mobile concrete mixer meets the legal requirements of large good vehicles.
Two new Cemex volumetric concrete mixers will begin operation this month from Altrincham concrete plant, headed up by lead driver, Ian Leadbetter from Widnes, Cheshire. Cemex Valuemix was started just over a year ago with only one vehicle and was the ‘first’ of this type of service in the North West of the UK.
Quality assured concrete and mortars
Ian Leadbetter will lead a team of three local drivers who will operate Cemex’s three vehicles. The team will provide local customers with quality assured concrete and mortars from as little as 0.5 m3 for a small path or paving, up to 8 m3 for large building projects.
Volumetric mixer vehicles carry the individual materials that are required to make concrete in separate bins – including cement and sand – and mix them together at the customer’s site.
There is a growing trend in the market to supply materials using mobile volumetric concrete mixers and currently, 10%, or an estimated 2 million m3, of the ready-mixed concrete market is delivered by volumetric vehicles each year across the UK.
Comment from Cemex
Ian Leadbetter comments: “The service is creating a lot of interest with loads being delivered as far afield as Northwich in Cheshire, Bolton in Lancashire and of course, all of Greater Manchester.” He continues: “Customers using Valuemix order and pay for exactly the amount of concrete they need and many ask for our “barrow and lay service”, in other words a free helping hand to lay the concrete wherever the customer needs it.”
