New Mix Concrete are pleased to supply the highest quality ready mix concrete suppliers in Stockport.

Over the past thirty years, we have amassed a wealth of expertise in the concrete placement barrowing system, which has earned us an excellent reputation among our clients.

We have a handy Concrete Calculator to help you figure out how much concrete you’ll need for your project, or you can request a site visit from our knowledgeable team.


Why New Mix as your ready mix concrete supplier


As ready mix concrete providers, we are aware of the factors that influence clients’ decisions to use concrete such as ours. Our ready mix concrete is an excellent way to have small amounts of concrete delivered directly to your site. It’s especially useful for small construction projects, home improvements, and DIY projects.

We use a mobile concrete batching equipment in our cement mixer truck to create all our concrete. One of the primary advantages of using our ready-mixed concrete is its flexibility. Because our concrete is mixed on-site, it can be altered and amended as needed to meet the specific needs of the project.

This is especially useful for smaller or medium-sized projects where estimating the exact amount of concrete required can be difficult. You can use exactly the amount of concrete you need because we utilise a digital metre to display how much is being used.

We provide a range of vehicles, all of which are serviced at one of our facilities in Manchester, Leeds, or Stockport by a member of our own fabrication and truck maintenance team.

Our ready mix concrete is ideal for both domestic and commercial concrete projects. And we offer a wide range of applications, such as:


– Driveways

– Extensions and alterations

– Landscaping

– Retaining walls

– Flooring

– Footings and foundations


Whatever project you’re working on, we have the tools and knowledge to meet your needs. Allow us to assist you in establishing a more solid foundation for your upcoming project.

What role does sub base preparation play in constructing a structurally sound concrete slab, and what materials should be used for the sub base and blinding layer?

First-rate sub base preparation is crucial for building a concrete slab with good structural support. A sound, well-drained subgrade should be built on top of the sub base.

The sub base should be made of well-graded granular shot-type material, and when it has been levelled and compacted, any surface cavities can be filled with a thin blinding coating of sand (no deeper than 20mm).


What compressive strength is required for ready-mix concrete?

The minimum compressive strength requirement for ready-mixed concrete is determined by the specific purpose and design requirements. Most structural applications require a minimum compressive strength of 2,500 to 3,000 psi. Concrete footings and slabs typically require 3,500 to 4,000 psi.


What impact does temperature have on ready-mix concrete’s quality?

 Concrete can set more quickly when the temperature is high, while concrete can set more slowly when the temperature is low. Low temperatures can lead the concrete to freeze and become harmed, while extremely high temperatures might cause it to crack or set unevenly.

It is vital to maintain the right temperature during placement and adequately cure the concrete following placement to produce the greatest possible quality concrete.


What is the importance of curing in concrete construction?

The growth of the concrete’s strength and long-term durability are significantly influenced by curing. Concrete curing is the process of slowing down the rate at which the water within the concrete itself evaporates (usually through the surface of the slab). This procedure can be significantly slowed down by curing the slab.
