UK top five readymix suppliers

Hanson, Cemex, Tarmac, Breedon and Aggregate Industries are the top five UK concrete suppliers, according to BDS Marketing Research’s annual report on the ready-mixed concrete industry, just published.

Breedon is the UK’s fourth largest ready-mixed concrete company following its purchase of Hope earlier this year. Breedon also operates the most concrete plants of any company in the industry.

The top five companies represent two thirds of the market the BDS report says.

“The rest of the industry is represented by around 400 batch and volumetric companies,” said report author, Andy Sales.

“It is the smaller companies which are most active in developing new plants. Over the last year, we have picked up nearly 30 planning consents for new plants. All but four of these were made by independent companies,” he said.
