Biker Group has invested £800 000 in the expansion of its services at the company’s newest depot near Thirsk. Located in North Yorkshire, the company’s investment will also see the creation of new jobs.

The expansion includes a new concrete batching plant and two concrete truckmixers at the company’s plant at the Dalton Industrial Estate, near Thirsk.

The company has a well-established volumix concrete division, which uses the latest technology in volumetric concrete mixers. It is expected that the new plant facility will provide a ready-mix concrete mix service, supported by the two new trucks. The Dalton depot was opened 12 months ago, with the latest investment expanding the company’s services to a range of customers across Yorkshire and the North East. This includes commercial clients, house builders, and the agriculture industry.

The expansion comes after a period of significant growth for the company as part of its five year expansion programme.

“The new plant and mixer trucks will support the continued growth of our concrete division,” said Sam Biker, Operations Manager at Biker Group. “The investment is part of a five year strategic plan to expand all divisions across the business. There will be ongoing investment in plant and personnel and growing the concrete division is in line with the company’s vision.”

Biker Group offers a portfolio of professional services to the construction industry. These include haulage, groundworks, construction, waste management, and recycling.
