Afrimat’s newly established readymix plant is riding on the wave of public construction activity in the Bushbuckridge area of Mpumalanga, South Africa, Quarrying Africa can report.
To take advantage of some of the projects underway in Bushbuckridge, Afrimat established a readymix plant in the area in September 2021. The plant is strategically located to service both public and private commercial projects in the area.
The anchor project, however, is the Mapulaneng Hospital, where Afrimat is supplying concrete to one of the three contractors on the project, Clear Choice Builders.
“We have been supplying the project since the establishment of the plant. All indications are that we will be supplying concrete to this project for the next two years,” explains Martin Kruger, RSC at Afrimat Contracting International.
The project, he adds, has enabled Afrimat to establish a strong footprint in the region. Together with the Nelspruit and Hazyview readymix operations, the new Bushbuckridge plant gives Afrimat a good coverage of the Lowveld region.
Afrimat also operates its Bushbuckridge Quarry, which is located some 10 km away from the readymix plant. “The 19 mm concrete stone we use is sourced from our own Bushbuckridge Quarry. The quarry also produces 13 mm concrete stone, crusher dust and G5 material for projects in the area,” he says.
