Eastern Concrete open fourth ready-mix plant
New batching plant near Stowmarket strengthens company’s regional supply options
EASTERN Concrete, independent suppliers of site-mixed and ready-mixed concrete, say they can now offer customers even more flexibility and choice of ready-mixed concrete supply solutions with the addition of their fourth fully automated batching plant on the outskirts of Stowmarket, in Suffolk.
The new site at Stowmarket Business Park is equipped with a Nisbau Euro 60 plant capable of producing consistent BSI quality-assured, wet-batched concrete at rates in excess of 50 cubic metres per hour, with full batch records and printed tickets offering a high level of confidence in the product.
The new location expands Eastern Concrete’s supply area, supporting the company’s chain of existing ready-mixed concrete plants in Bury St Edmunds, Wymondham and Waterbeach, near Cambridge, and complementing its established volumetric on-site supply solution.
Eastern Concrete say both delivered and collect customers will benefit from this latest strategic addition, which will enhance the company’s supply capabilities along the A14 corridor and beyond.
Managing director Tom Baker said: ‘We recognized the opportunity to further enhance the Eastern Concrete offer. This new plant will enable us to increase the area and nature of concrete delivery, complementing the existing business and giving customers the levels of supply required to complete their projects.’
The Nisbau Euro 60 plant incorporates a twin-shaft mixer capable delivering of 1.25 cubic metre batches, ensuring trucks are filled with a computer-controlled wet mix in a matter of minutes.
Founded in 2002 and operating out of their main depot at Stowmarket, Eastern Concrete are also able to provide on-site mixed concrete supplies alongside concrete pumping services with their boomed concrete pump fleet.
