Our History

Volume Metric Concrete Ltd was formed by our director Mr J Singh and began trading 19th March 2006. Having been in the construction industry since the age of 20, much experience was gained on large commercial projects throughout the UK and gained expertise in the market our company serves.
From the late 90s until 2006 our director was a mobile concrete pump operative for a national construction company and spent much time on major construction sites. He was also the main operative at Heathrow T5 from the day work had started for the first year along, being the first operator to pump concrete in the central terminal building and other major sites such as Stratford box, Heathrow T3, Gatwick airside and Chelsea wharf developments to name a few.
This lead on to interest in the volume metric mixers which were relevantly new in the 2004-06 years. We as a company now operate volumetric mixers along with the supply of conventional readymix concrete to BSI standards, all with the knowledge gained from being hands on in the market. Along with supplying concrete we also operate mobile and line pumps.
Our company today operates as a professional supplier of a industry in which it has vast knowledge.
Having been the longest established supplier of mix on site in the North West Kent & South East London area we can truly state we are the best in our local area.
