A joint venture between United Development Company and BESIX of Belgium as major shareholders, United Readymix has served the construction needs of The Pearl-Qatar since 2006. More recently, United Readymix extended its new line of focus to secure and supply various prestigious development projects outside The Pearl-Qatar, including Lusail, where the company had underlined its commitment to expansion and growth by establishing there a production branch in 2011.
United Readymix operates three state-of-the-art batching plants adjacent to The Pearl-Qatar, and two batching plants in the Lusail Project. These plants utilize over 60 mixer trucks to produce more than 60,000 cubic meters of concrete monthly. Other equipment supporting the plants include 10 static concrete pumps and placing booms and 14 mobile pumps.
Despite increasing competition in the market, the Company was able to achieve a good turnover compared to last year.
United Readymix strives to deliver the highest quality of concrete, and its production capacity is likely to go up substantially in 2014 as so far witnessed during the last quarter of 2013 and as construction projects in Qatar multiply following FIFA’s choice of Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup. Moreover, the ambitious infrastructure and other industrial development plans embarked by the State of Qatar are expected to boost the demand for readymix concrete over the next decade.
