Global building materials company CEMEX has opened its first admixture blending plant in the US. The facility will provide the company’s 160 nearby ready-mixed concrete plants with up to 16 different products for regular and high-performance concrete applications.

Admixtures include a number of products, including normal and high range water reducers, setting accelerators and retarders, air-entraining agents, and speciality products. All of these are blended by a state-of-the-art automated system. Located in Florida, the new 21 000 ft2 plant was visited by CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos to celebrate its opening.

“This blending plant produces specialised admixtures developed by CEMEX, and therefore enables us to create concrete mixtures that differentiate us in the marketplace,” said Madridejos. “The centralised location of the facility ensures we can deliver those unique admixtures to the facilities that need it, providing our ready-mix customers with exceptional value-added products and allowing our plants to be ready for any request.”

This plant is the first of three USA-based admixture plants planned by CEMEX, with additional plants scheduled to open at existing sites in Texas and California in the coming months.
