What Is Ready-Mix Concrete?

Ready-Mix Concrete is concrete that is manufactured at a batching plant, according to a specific design mix, bought and sold by volume, typically in cubic yards, and then delivered to a work site by transit mixer trucks. This results in a precise mixture, allowing specialty concrete mixtures to be developed, implemented and delivered on site.

Once the Ready-Mix Concrete is ordered, the design mix is batched and delivered to the job site in a concrete transit mixer truck. The concrete is then unloaded off the truck, placed into designated areas. Ready-Mixed Concrete eliminates the need to store the bulk ingredients needed to mix concrete on site.

Ready-Mix, referred to as the “Customized Concrete”, is preferred over on-site concrete mixing, because of the precision of the mixture and reduced work site confusion, allowing concrete finishers to do their jobs more efficiently by eliminating the added task of mixing concrete.

The Ready-Mix Mixture is made of natural ingredients combined creating a strong durable and economical building material which can be molded and formed into any shape or design.
