New mixer increases capacity

Longley Concrete continues to invest in the growth of the business with the addition of a 2.3 cubic meter mixer at its Dewsbury head office.

The mixer replaces a 1.5 cubic meter mixer and will enable the business to improve efficiencies and produce more concrete for its precast beam and block flooring products.

The business has continued to invest in production and plant facilities over recent years, with the addition of a London base at Belvedere, as well as new side loaders, new offices and a new mixer at the head office. This ongoing investment has resulted in more sales for the company, which has been established since 1947. This year the company saw record sales of £21million.

Michael Longley commented “We see it as vital that the company continues to invest in people and infrastructure at a time in the construction industry when both domestic and commercial building is increasing. We now have the capacity to produce enough precast concrete for over 28,000 new homes.”
