Ready Mix Concrete

Ready Mix Concrete utilization

Ready mix concrete is one of the oldest building materials known to man. Concrete is made from aggregates, primarily sand and gravel bonded together permanently with powdered cement, water and air, to produce a durable, compact, fire-resistant and watertight building material requiring little or no maintenance.

Concrete is the only major building product which arrives at the job site in a plastic state that can be molded into practically 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.

The Materials Group maintains eight ready mix plants in Northern New York and operates a fleet of more than 30 vehicles.
