John Ongley Sells Concrete To Contractors
Precast Concrete Production to Selling Concrete To Contractors
Selling Concrete To Contractors. John used to cast his own fencing posts and panels and only needed a small quantity of concrete, so he would pick up the concrete from a local ready-mix yard and take it back to the factory.
This worked for a while when the business was small but became time-consuming and expensive as the business grew.
John invested in a small Fibo batching plant 6m³/hr. This worked until the ready-mix batching plant closed down. John had contractors asking if he would sell them ready-mix. Demand grew so John upgraded to a larger 16m³/hr Fibo machine and business is good.
The F1200 John purchased is an agitator pan mixer.
Integrated twin hopper for 2 types of aggregate. 2 separate feed belts. Water supply. Load cells. Dosing equipment and control unit with batching computer.
The batching plant is dosed with cement from a big bag cement silo.
John said “The machine is very easy to operate and very reliable, If I have any issues Fibo give me great customer support. I am happy to refer people interested in a concrete batching plant to Fibo, belongs it’s not in my geographical area, I like making money”
