The multi-million-pound plant is located near Abingdon and can supply all concrete needs – including lower carbon, high volume and specialist mixes.

The site has a large storage capacity, minimising the frequency with which raw materials need to be brought in and is also rail-connected, allowing aggregates to be transported from Heidelberg Materials’ rail-connected quarries. This keeps more than 3,000 lorry journeys off the roads yearly, equating to over 346,000 miles, reducing congestion and carbon emissions.

The plant includes a range of sustainability enhancements, including a water harvesting system, an energy-efficient mixer, a waste management system for concrete washout, and the ability to store and incorporate reclaimed and lower carbon materials into the concrete mix.

“Our new ready-mixed concrete plant is perfectly placed to support our customers in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area,” said Gordon Napier, Concrete Managing Director.

“We offer a fast, efficient, reliable and consistent supply of ready-mixed concrete and can supply any requirements, whether for a collect customer or for a large infrastructure project.”
