Ready mix concrete is one of the oldest building materials known to man. Concrete is made from aggregates, particularly sand and gravel bonded together permanently with powdered cement, water and a bit of air to make a durable, compact, fire-resistant and watertight building material requiring little or no maintenance.
Concrete is the only major building product arriving at the job site in a plastic state that can be molded into nearly any shape before it hardens into an extremely strong, long-lasting material. This economical, easy to make product ranks as the world's most widely used building material. In fact, it serves as the foundation for nearly all of the skyscrapers, factories, dams, bridges and overpasses built today.
Over the last twenty years, incredible advancements have been brought to the concrete industry in the form of automatic features, electrical, air hydraulic controls, high discharge equipment, materials measurement and handling, plus scale operations. High strength concrete began to be developed, in addition to a wider use of winter operations.
Rapid developments continue in the concrete field. Graymont, and other major concrete producers, make a science of developing just the right concrete for a particular job. We have concrete laboratories, certified quality assurance specialists, a wide range of admixtures to choose from depending on the job's requirements, plus the latest in computerized batching and dispatching equipment.
