£2 million investment increases capacity at Hanson’s strategically located central London concrete plant
HANSON’s King’s Cross concrete plant has undergone a £2 million upgrade, doubling capacity at the central London site.
The previous pair of 2 cubic metre Skako planetary mixers have been replaced with two 4 cubic metre models, which can produce up to 230 cubic metres of concrete an hour. As well as increasing capacity the new equipment has also improved efficiency.
The investment allows the team to supply key projects in the capital, including Thames Tideway and Google headquarters, as well as future contracts such as HS2.
‘Our King’s Cross plant is located on a strategically placed railhead in the centre of London with all of our aggregate and cement requirements delivered by train from source, keeping over 8,000 lorry movements a year off the roads,’ said Brian Charleton, managing director of Hanson Concrete.
‘This investment allows the site to continue playing its part in helping to improve the local area by providing much-needed construction material to the capital in the most environmentally and safest manner possible.’
