Biker Group invest in new concrete plant

Biker Group

£800,000 investment will see the expansion of services at the company’s newest depot near Thirsk

THE North Yorkshire-based Biker Group have announced a £800,000 investment that will see the expansion of services at their newest depot and the creation of jobs.

Biker Group have invested in a new concrete batching plant and two concrete truckmixers at their site at Dalton Industrial Estate, near Thirsk.

The family-owned business already has a well-established volumix concrete division, which utilizes the latest technology in volumetric concrete mixers, and the new plant facility will now provide a ready-mix concrete service, supported by the two new trucks.

Biker Group opened the Dalton depot 12 months ago and the latest investment will expand the services they offer to a range of customers across Yorkshire and the North East, including commercial clients, house builders and the agriculture industry.

The expansion comes after a period of significant growth for Biker Group, who were established nearly 50 years ago by company chairman Tony Biker, and is part of a five-year expansion programme.

The company delivers a portfolio of professional services to the construction industry, including haulage, groundworks, construction, waste management and recycling.

Biker Group’s operations manager, Sam Biker, said: ‘The new plant and mixer trucks will support the continued growth of our concrete division. 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 have 176 direct employees and this expansion has created five additional jobs at Dalton, including drivers, a batcher and office staff.
