Armcon, supplier of the world’s only British designed and British built volumetric concrete mixer, has been in the concrete business for over 30 years. Robert Armstrong founded the business in 1992, supplying moulds for the precast concrete industry and to this day Armcon remains a market leading supplier of precast moulds. This success led to the development of automated precast machines and prestressed beds and ultimately to the continuous mixers available in the market today.
The success of Armcon and its premium position in the market, has led to the development of the most experienced team of industry specialists as well as a significant expansion of infrastructure. Armcon Business Park was subsequently purchased, and the 5-acre site in Cheshire was remodelled to provide a 100,000 sq. feet production facility and the company’s head office.
Building on the success of the precast business and its core strengths of ceaseless innovation and exceptional customer service, Armcon introduced the volumetric concrete mixer to the UK in the 1990’s. Having pioneered the volumetric mixer market and established itself as the clear market leader, the time was right for Armcon to use its core strengths and its expertise to take its first steps into the global market.
As a result, in 2019 Armcon presented the world’s first British designed and built volumetric mixer, with a long-term plan to develop a range of British concrete mixers for international markets. After 30 years of driving the business Robert Armstrong took the decision to step back and put a new management team in place to achieve the business objective of advancing concrete delivery around the world. This strategic business goal was behind the decision to transition Armcon to have an employee-owned status in 2021, with the ultimate aim of becoming the world’s premium supplier of concrete delivery equipment.
