CEMEX UK launches a new brand, Valuemix


CEMEX UK launches a new brand, Valuemix*, a mobile volumetric service providing concrete and screed to customers in Greater Manchester and the North West. This is a ‘first’ with this type of service in the North of England, as the concrete is quality assured and the vehicle meets the legal requirements of a large goods vehicle.

Valuemix will provide customers with quality assured building materials from as little as 0.5 of a cubic metre - for a small path, paving and foundation type projects up to  8 cubic metres for larger building projects, making it ideal for those doing  D-I-Y,  small to medium construction businesses and individual builders all of whom may who require small loads.

This new flexible service can deliver more than one product mix in a single delivery drop, so for a builder who is constructing a house and may require different strength mixes this provides an ideal solution. Blinding and Mass Concrete Fill concretes are often required together when building most types of foundations whether for a new house or a conservatory extension.

Customers will order and pay for exactly the amount of materials they require and can call on a free helping hand with a “barrow and lay service” to assist with placement.

A complete range of 20 different solution based materials are available and have been specially designed for a wide range of building applications including house building and extensions, conservatories, drainage, paving, industrial and agricultural applications.

There has been a growing trend in the market to supply materials via volumetric vehicles, with an estimated 2 million cubic metres of concrete delivered annually to customers.  CEMEX has ensured that their Valuemix vehicles meet the same safety, vehicle testing and driver regulation as its fleet of nearly 1000 large goods vehicles.

In comparison many operators in the market classifying their vehicles as engineering plants rather than large goods vehicles, avoiding essential regulation which creates a significant safety risk for other road users and customers.

“This new business is a shift in terms of the market for CEMEX. As one of the country’s leading building materials supplier, we will now be able to offer small to medium businesses and individual customers, the same quality and innovative products that we do to large contracts such as 20 Fenchurch Street and Crossrail in London.

“We have worked with local building companies to develop an appropriate product range and a delivery service that is reliable.

“Safety is paramount for us and therefore the Valuemix business will be subject to rigorous safety regulations and measures. We want to ensure that we offer the very best service to the community in which we operate” comments Chris Leese, Vice President CEMEX Readymix and Mortars.

He continues “Very often customers ask us for help and advice with small concrete quantities and end up purchasing the raw materials to mix their own concrete.  This is often labour intensive and produces a poor end product. Valuemix will take all that hassle away and our state of the art mobile concreting vehicles will help customers enjoy a safer, easier experience with the knowledge that CEMEX support is only a phone call away. “
