Hills Quarry Products’ is celebrating 10 years of supplying quality ready-mixed concrete to customers across central, southern England.

The Swindon based company opened its first concrete plant in October 2005 and soon achieved the industry recognised ‘Quality Scheme for Ready-Mixed Concrete’ (QSRMC) certification.

The modern day business now boasts five state of the art production plants which produced over 166,000m³ of ready-mixed concrete in 2014/15. A fleet of 21 mixer trucks including 20 franchised drivers deliver to a wide variety of customers including those operating in construction; agriculture and civil engineering.

Group director, Peter Andrew, said: “The 10th anniversary is an important milestone for our ready-mixed concrete business. The concerted efforts of a tight-knit team from sales and the office staff, through to the concrete operations and our dedicated franchisee drivers has seen the business thrive in a competitive marketplace. Our shared commitment to give our customers the very best products and service leaves us well placed for further growth.” ENDS
