New CEMEX Flooring Plant Could Help Government Achieve New Housing Target


New CEMEX Flooring Plant Could Help Government Achieve New Housing Target

CEMEX UK has opened a new flooring production plant at Rochester in Kent which could help the Government achieve its target of one million new homes by 2020. The new plant has the capacity to manufacture over half a million linear metres of precast concrete T-beam flooring a year, equivalent to flooring for approximately 4,000 houses.

T-beams form part of the Readyfloor range, an easy-to-install suspended flooring system composed of pre-stressed concrete beams with standard blocks providing the infill.  The beams produced at Rochester will be complemented by blocks produced at the company’s well-established plant at Northfleet 

Rochester plant has received a significant investment and represents an important step in CEMEX’s regeneration of the former cement plant site. Once in full production the plant will employ around 15 people from the local community. 

With CE marking and ISO 9001 accreditation received, the site is already serving customers in the area.  A full range of support functions is available to customers from the business head office near Bristol, including structural calculations and a BIM compatible estimating service.
