The specialist all-in-one concrete pumping truck, which was designed and manufactured by IHS Ltd for Mixamate and provides the delivery, mixing and pumping of materials from a single vehicle, has this year been shortlisted for a prestigious international award in Paris.
The awards programme is part of the Intermat International Exhibition for Construction and Infrastructure for building public works equipment, which takes place only once every three years. The shortlisting comes in the category of Lifting, Handling, & Transportation and is based on the new Conqueror machine’s unique ability to solve a specific problem within the industry, namely that of limiting the number of vehicles and amount of machinery on-site when pumping jobs are required.
Mixamate recently deployed the new machine for global construction group HOCHTIEF, where it was required to help complete works on two railway bridges at Highbury & Islington station, London. This new methodology is becoming increasingly popular in the industry, as companies look to save time, hassle, and costs in delivering concrete and screed efficiently.
“It’s a huge honour to have gained this recognition around the Intermat show, which we’ll be attending later on this year,” said Chris Smith, Managing Director for Mixamate. “Since first beginning development on the new truck a couple of years ago now, it has received a great deal of industry praise, including making the manufacturing category shortlist at the London Construction Awards. These technological advancements, alongside the in-house lab testing capabilities we have introduced in recent years, ensures that Mixamate is able to continue leading the industry in providing batching plant standard concrete through a modern, flexible mix-on-site service.”
The machines are produced in the IHS factory in Sheffield and we have now supplied a number of machines to the company. A new liquid screed version of the truck has also recently been introduced, and in 2018 the firm will make further expansions to its existing fleet.
