A Brief History of Ready Mix Concrete

So what is ready mix concrete? Well ready mix concrete is prepared in a central plant also known as a (batching plant). The customer orders the concrete and it is mixed in the plant to the correct recipe. Then the concrete is transferred into a cylindrical truck known as cement mixers. 

Did you know

In the early 1900’s concrete was delivered by horse drawn carriage, whilst the carriage was been towed there were mixing paddles attached to the carts wheel, so the concrete was mixed by the paddles. Which meant you were able to get ready mix concrete to your job site. 

Facts you will not know about concrete

  • Did you know that concrete can set underwater – with the right ingredients concrete can be used in underwater projects such as bridges.
  • Archaeologists discovered concrete was used in Neolithic times – on a neolithic site in northern Israel in the 1980’s archaeologists unearthed a concrete floor as well as evidence of a kiln used to burn limestone to make cement. 
  • The first concrete road was built in 1909 – this was built on Woodward Avenue in Greenfield Township in the United States.
  • Concrete was named by the Romans – the word ‘concrete’ comes from the latin word ‘Concretus’ which roughly translates to ‘grow together’

Concrete slabs are cut by diamonds – Diamonds are used to drill, saw and cut concrete slabs. The Diamond head is used because it is very tough and durable.
