Almost half of the cement produced in France is used in ready-mixed concrete plants.

Each year these plants produce 35 million m³ of concrete, i.e. 100,000 m ³ per day.

France has 1600 ready-mixed concrete plants. These supply concrete to worksites with 6000 concrete mixer trucks which are capable of delivering within a radius of 30km around a mixing plant).

Ready-mixed concrete plants produce all the commonly-used types of concrete: high-performance concrete, light concrete, heavy concrete, etc. These plants are automated and are equiped to satisfy the most stringent environmental protection requirements.

The precision of the production processes guarantee the quality and uniformity of the delivered products.
