The Concrete Company Ltd takes delivery of a new DAF 8x4 Concrete Mixer

Based in Peterborough, ready-mix concrete supplier The Concrete Company Ltd continues growth with a new 8x4 mixer.

The team at The Concrete Company are experts in the production and supply of ready-mixed concrete. They have been operating for 32 years and throughout this time have steadily grown their fleet to 60 trucks; including truck mounted mixers and pumps, and articulated equipment. As such it has become the largest privately owned ready-mix concrete supplier in the UK. The company’s operations are not limited to their Peterborough head office. The Concrete Company has over 14 read-mix plants located throughout Anglia and the East Midlands.

The company was in need of new mixer equipment to continue routine expansion of its fleet and maintain its high quality service to new and existing customers. Like many operators, The Concrete Company has historically run a uniform fleet of Scania equipment, however for its latest acquisition the business opted for DAF due to availability. The equipment is a DAF CF450 FAD 8x4 chassis mounted with a Kel-Berg 8m³ concrete mixer installation, the latest rigid equipment from Kel-Berg.

Tim Dighton, owner at The Concrete Company Ltd, said “we chose Kel-Berg because they had a mixer immediately available … we had heard of their new mixer installation and we wanted to try it out”.
