Rob, Mark, Kevin and Iain of CEMEX Readymix Southern have set up a new mobile volumetric concrete and screed service based at the Poole plant in New Quay Road, Poole.
Although there are other volumetric businesses in the area, this is a ‘first’ in the Poole area with the CEMEX volumetric vehicles meeting the higher safety standards of a HGV, not a mobile plant.
Two volumetric vehicles are based at the plant, operated and driven by Mark Sears and Iain Stevenson, delivering to within 20 miles of the plant. The office side of the business is managed by Andy Lunt and overall, by Business Manager, Rob Zsigo.
Zsigo comments “This new business in Poole means we can offer individuals and small to medium building companies the same high quality building materials supplied by CEMEX and used in major construction projects both locally and in London, for example 20 Fenchurch Street and Crossrail in London.
“All our loads are QSRMC* certificated whether they are 0.5 cu metres for a small path or 8 cu metres for a larger building project, giving our customers a quality and design assurance which isn’t the case with some of our competitors.
“Just as important, many operators in the market classifying their vehicles as engineering plants rather than HGVs, avoiding essential regulation which can create a significant safety risk for other road users and customers. Not so with our vehicles,” concludes Zsigo.
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 in the UK. 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 (LGVs) such as cement tankers.
