A team of over 50 people from the Concrete Society recently visited our Leeds RMX Plant.
The day was coordinated by Roger Taylor who was asked to arrange the open day tour of the Plant and supply a couple of speakers to talk about the basics of Readymix and pre-cast production.
Although some of the people have worked with concrete all their working lives, they have never had the chance to go to a production unit to actually see how the concrete is produced.
Roger Taylor continues: “John Parker, Tracey Carden and Gordon Renshaw helped me show our visitors around the Plant, and part of the tour was a demonstration of our Evolution mix.
"It always amazes me that a 50 slump concrete can turn to a 700 flow with just a small amount of admixture added, and our visitors were suitably impressed as well!
"A big thank-you to the team for ensuring the demonstration went without a hitch. The day was very interactive with some of our visitors trying their hands at a slump test themselves.
"The feedback from The Concrete Society and our visitors has been excellent; they now want us to put another one on for next year. The picture shows us in a controlled area so there was no requirement to wear our safety helmets.”
