ABOUT US

Kiwi Concrete pride themselves on service and try to ensure that deliveries are on time, every time. They do not fall into the trap of other ready mix companies of taking in too much work at the one time. Simply they complete one pour prior to commencing the next. This works extremely well for Kiwi Concrete and their clients.

Kiwi Concrete has an excellent track record of supplying top quality concrete and service on time.

OUR HISTORY

Laing Plant

Kiwi Concrete Limited was originally formed in 1997 as Laing Concrete operating from Christchurch with the concrete plant established within Road Metals quarry at Yaldhurst.

Laing Concrete was purchased by Road Metals the following year, and with new ownership came a new name – Kiwi Concrete.

In 2005 Road Metals made the decision to establish Kiwi Concrete in Oamaru and a batching plant was constructed and concrete production commenced.

In 2017 Kiwi Concrete set up a new concrete plant in Twizel to service the upper Waitaki and Mackenzie areas.

This plant is the only plant in the Twizel area to hold an audit certificate from the NZRMCA which ensures customers can be confident of the concrete quality.

In 2018 Kiwi Concrete purchased the local Kaikoura concrete business, Harmac Concrete, retaining all the staff.

Harmac Concrete is a major supplier for the repairs following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.

Kiwi Concrete also have fully mobile concrete plants that can be set up on site for larger projects. These plants vary in size with the largest mobile batching plant capable of 100 m³ per hour production.

All of the Kiwi Concrete batching plants are computerised to ensure batch accuracy and consistency and a record is kept of each load of concrete batched.
