The Customer

Mixamate is the country’s leading provider of mix on site concrete and screed, offering batching plant standard mixes in a handy mix on-site service. Their all-in-one Concrete Pumping Trucks and Screed Pumping Trucks provide the delivery, mixing, and pumping of materials from a single vehicle – meaning you don’t need to hire a separate concrete pump or screed pump anymore. With Mixamate you only pay for what you take, therefore there is no waste. In addition to concrete pumping and screed pumping, Mixamate also offers more traditional forms of delivery including, mini-dumper, straight pour and barrowing.

The Challenge

The challenge for Mixamate was to change the UK concrete and screed market by having all the functions of mixing, batching, delivering, and pumping from one vehicle rather than two! The brief from Mixamate to IHS was to remove the guesswork out of traditional volumetric deliveries and to improve the reputation and perception of the “mix on site sector” through delivering a high quality, great value range of concrete and screed delivery solutions.

The Solution

IHS designed and manufactured the unique fleet of Conqueror trucks meaning Mixamate can deliver, mix and pump concrete and screed from one vehicle. Each machine within the Mixamate fleet contains an on-board computer that mathematically calculates the mixing process, providing a fully auditable and detailed quality control process.
