Ready Mixed Concrete
If the construction industry has a public face, it’s the familiar ready mixed concrete truck with the revolving drum – a daily fixture in traffic and on construction sites.
High visibility of these trucks stems from the near universal use of the product it delivers. Easily the world’s most widely used construction material, concrete is part of everything we build. And nearly three-quarters of it comes in the form of ready mixed concrete.
Lower Carbon Concrete That Delivers
Lehigh Hanson is committed to lowering the carbon footprint of concrete and continuing its work with cementitious materials and new technology and innovations. Ready mixed concrete is more of a delivery system than a type of concrete. Like all concrete, it has three basic components: cement, water, and aggregates – the stone, sand, and gravel that bind together.
The process begins at the ready mixed concrete plant, where the raw ingredients are loaded into the truck-mounted drum. Once loaded, the concrete ingredients can be mixed immediately by rotating the drum or mixed on the way to the construction site.
Lehigh Hanson is among the top ready mixed concrete suppliers in North America. We work with our customers to create sustainable, low carbon ready mixed concrete formulations that can meet their cost and performance requirements.

Learn about best practices for concrete finishes and sealers, curing, and cleaning.
