United Ready Mix to supply concrete for Pearl-Qatar
Sunday, July 16, 2006


United Ready Mix, Qatar’s newest concrete producer and supplier, will be one of the largest suppliers of concrete for The Pearl-Qatar, a multi-billion dollar offshore real estate development project.

The plant will be located on the construction site of The Pearl-Qatar and will initially start producing 40,000 cu m of concrete per month before rising to more than 70,000 cu m per month in September, officials said.

“These plants are being set up to make sure our clients get ready mix at the right quality and at the right time,“ said Jan Slange, general manager of United Ready Mix.

“We have a total of three plants, one will produce 120 cu m of concrete per hour, while the other two will supply an additional 180 cu m each per hour. In total, production will be more than 75,000 cu m per month,” he added.

In addition to its perfect location on the construction site for The Pearl-Qatar, United Ready Mix has a staff of about 200 people to ensure high quality and timely production. There is also a fleet of 60 concrete truck mixers and about 20 mobile concrete pumps operating.

“The advantage of being located on the site of The Pearl-Qatar is that we are close to our client and we won’t have problems or delays others have when transporting materials to their clients,” said Peter Hottentot, operations manager for United Ready Mix.
