Saudi Readymix Concrete Company has announced plans to set up a US $4.8 million (SR18 million) readymix concrete plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. The 15,600m2 facility – which is scheduled to be operational by the end of January 2007 – will start with an annual production capacity of 120,000m3 of concrete, with plans to double that in 2008. “We are well equipped for this challenge,” said Fadi Mujahed, marketing director, Saudi Readymix. “It represents a crucial step in our ambitious expansion plans, and it is but one of many new plants which we plan to begin commissioning in the near future,” added Mujahed. Ready-mixed concrete’s combination of strength, durability, economy and versatility have made it a valuable choice for any construction project, ranging from residential villas to mega-projects. “This will be our ninth station in the western region,” said Bader Hussain, Saudi Readymix’s regional manager for the western region. “Our first station in this region was established in Makkah 17 years ago, and we currently have plants in Jeddah, Makkah, Medina and Rabigh. “In Yanbu, we will be setting up two batching plants, which can both produce over 200m3 of concrete per hour, an ice plant, an aggregate washing plant, a large number of mobile pumps and truck mixers, and other auxiliary equipment. “The plant will also be equipped with a modern lab for testing concrete and raw materials.” Saudi Readymix Concrete Company was established in 1978 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khalid Ali Alturki & Sons group of companies (Alturki Group). The company boasts the largest fleet of ready-mixed concrete equipment in the country, with over 300 truck mixers and 90 mobile pumps.
