Hills Quarry Products reach concrete milestone
Company supplies its one-and-a-half millionth cubic metre of ready-mixed concrete
HILLS Quarry Products’ supply of ready-mixed concrete, which has grown from strength to strength since it started in 2005, reached a major milestone this month.
With five concrete plants supplying more than 1,000 customers across central and southern England, the company has now produced more than 1.5 million cubic metres of ready-mixed concrete for a wide variety of commercial and domestic applications and uses.
This amount is equivalent to the construction of 16 Wembley stadiums, four-and-a-half Burj Khalifa towers or the volume of 600 Olympic-size swimming pools.
The 1,500,000th cubic metre was delivered this month to a residential building site near Wantage, in Oxfordshire, for long-standing customer Conlon.
Chris Lambert, senior buyer at Conlon, said: ‘Hills have supplied ready-mixed concrete to Conlon at many different sites since 2005 and have become a highly regarded and preferred supplier.
‘Being able to contact the Hills’ concrete plants directly means we can get up-to-date information and amend orders easily and efficiently.’
Peter Andrew, group director of Hills Quarry Products, commented: ‘Selling 1,500,000 cubic metres of ready-mixed concrete is a fantastic achievement. I would like to thank Conlon and all of our customers, new and old, for their business and support.
‘Hills do a great job fostering long-standing relationships with customers, which is underpinned by a high-quality service, quality-assured products and our ongoing commitment to health and safety.’
