Readymix boosts production with new mixers
Readymix (West Indies) Limited (RML) has received six new concrete mixers, and with an additional six expected within the next two months, the company’s fleet will move to 40. This development has brought higher volumes of concrete production as an additional 2000 cubic metres per month can now be achieved. Endorsing the company’s new purchase is RML’s Marketing Manager, Reshma Gooljar-Singh who hails the new vehicles as very significant to the company’s overall operations.
Gooljar-Singh explained that the purchase of the new mixers is part of the company’s drive to improve customer satisfaction. She said RML’s customers will benefit from further improved delivery times as well as the entire market can enjoy the availability of greater concrete volumes.
“Based on our 2014 sales and budgeted trend of sales, it was noticed that the company needed to expand its present delivery capacity. It was also observed that some of our existing concrete mixers were aging. It is for this reason, that we felt it necessary to go forward with these acquisitions,” she said.
The mobile ‘mixers’, which sport the graphical designs of Quality Signs and Graphics Solutions Limited, were purchased via the company’s long standing contractor, Selwyn Chandler of Pro Pump Limited, a company, which supplied RML with concrete mixers and concrete pumps in 2000 and 1984 respectively. Chandler has assured that the concrete mixers, with main features that include an increased drum size and enhanced mixing capabilities, are of an internationally-recognised standard.
Last year, RML acquired a state-of-the-art sand and gravel wash plant, designed to improve production by not only thoroughly cleaning, but sifting aggregate into the requisite sizes. The powerful machine operates at a production capacity of 200 tonnes per hour and is now complemented by the additional concrete mixers in ensuring even more efficient delivery of premium concrete to the local market.
