What is Readymix Concrete ?
Ready-mix concrete is a type of concrete that is manufactured at a plant according to a set recipe, thereafter delivered to a worksite, using transit mixer. The resultant is a precise mixture, which allows quality concrete to be developed and implemented on construction sites. The first ready-mix factory was built in the 1930s, however it did not seized the market till 1960 and has continued to grow since than. Ready-mix concrete technology is in use all over the world and nearly 95% concrete is done ready-mixed & delivered to order in USA, Europe & Middle East. Pakistan is also entering the phase of large development in the construction sector & need for ready-mix concrete is growing on a day-by-day basis.
