Cemex UK is spending $1.5m at a former concrete plant in Leeds, UK.
The old plant was demolished in 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 said, “The new plant has a simple and logical layout, and is well engineered. So for example, there is overhead storage for 500 tonnes 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 tonnes of concrete.
