AFRIMAT has described the official opening of its Denver Readymix Concrete Batch plant earlier this month as an exciting new chapter for the company in the Eastern Cape and for the community of Gqerberha (formerly Port Elizabeth).
The company says the new plant can batch 70m³ an hour and that its equipment ensures the minimum industry specifications and requirements are met. “This, along with the company’s technical expertise, allows Afrimat to deliver quality ready-mix concrete within the specified time frames,” the company said in a statement.
Its expert technical team, based in Cape Town, is also at hand to help develop specialised products at the request of customers.
In addition to Denver Readymix, Afrimat has 25 fixed ready-mix operations in the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and Limpopo, complemented by mobile ready-mix plants, which can be set up anywhere across the country on a per-project basis.
The Concrete-based Products division supplies concrete primarily to large-scale civil engineering and infrastructure projects through its fixed and mobile ready-mix plants where it’s batched on demand and transported to site by mixer trucks.
This service is also available to smaller businesses in Gqerberha and surrounding areas within a 100km radius, such as Kirkwood, Hankey, Patensie and Jeffreys Bay.
Afrimat’s proprietary commercial quarries, located in eight of SA’s provinces and in Mozambique, also supply most of the raw materials for its concrete products and ready-mix divisions.
The Aggregates division produces aggregates in a variety of sizes and technical specifications, primarily with products which include stone, gravel and sand.
Both divisions fall under one of Afrimat’s main key divisions: Construction Materials.
The group also supplies products and services through its Industrial Minerals division, Bulk Commodities division and Contracting Services division.
