Radds is currently the largest independent distributor of concrete and aggregates for Lafarge and Afrisam in South Africa. Our specialist Ready-Mix Division focuses on the distribution of pre-mixed concrete, which is transported from strategically located batching plants directly to our customer's construction sites.
Ready-mix concrete is often preferred over onsite concrete mixing because of the accurate and reliable consistency of the mixture. Radds's ready-mix delivers consistent concrete which is a precise blend of Portland cement, water and aggregates, comprising a combination of sand and gravel, or crushed stone. The concrete is delivered according to set specifications, or slump criteria, using purpose-built trucks with in-transit mixers to ensure a high quality product for specific civil work.
Radds prides itself in using locally assembled trucks from PowerStar and has the largest privately owned fleet of these trucks in Africa. The ready-mix trucks are fitted with locally manufactured mixer bodies and are specifically dedicated to the Ready-Mix division to ensure customer service levels are met at all times. Specially trained service units support the fleet throughout Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Bloemfontein.
