Redefining the pace and quality of construction
ACC pioneered India's first commercial Ready Mixed Concrete (RMX) plant in Mumbai in 1994.
Today, the RMX business is a separate company called ACC Concrete Limited and is one of the
largest manufacturers of RMX in India. It has over 40 modern plants across major cities such as
Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Delhi. Hyderabad, Goa, Pune and Ahmedabad.
ACC's pioneering efforts in introducing RMX along with the promotion of bulk cement handling
facilities have refined the pace and quality of construction across Indian metropolitan cities.
A number of landmark structures in India's cities have been constructed using ACC Concrete -
mega housing projects, townships, commercial complexes, factories, bridges, flyovers, roads
and railways. Prestigious infrastructure projects like the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, the Indore-
Dewas bypass, Kolkata and Delhi Metro Rail projects and bridges and flyovers in Mumbai have
used ACC.
The sophistication and value addition that ACC RMX brings to mega projects can now be availed
for smaller projects by individual home builders. The high levels of quality assurance are now
available for the construction of your dream home by using ACC RMX- at virtually no extra cost.
What is Ready Mixed Concrete
At traditional work sites, each of these materials are first procured separately and then mixed in
specific proportions on site to make concrete. This method is plagued by inconsistent concrete
quality on account of varying levels of skill and/or supervision and can impact the quality of
Ready Mixed Concrete, popularly called RMX, is concrete that has been specifically
manufactured for delivery to the a customer's construction site in a freshly-mixed or unhardened
state. Concrete itself is a mixture of portland cement, water and aggregates comprising sand,
gravel or crushed stone. It assures a higher level of quality and eliminates inventory
management and losses of construction material at the site.
Ready Mixed Concrete is traded by volume, usually expressed in cubic meters, and can be
custom-made to suit different applications.
RMX - Adding value to concrete
Ready Mixed Concrete is manufactured under computer-controlled operations. It is transported
and placed at the site using sophisticated equipment and methods. RMX assures its customers
numerous benefits:
1. Uniform, consistent and assured quality of concrete
2. Flexibility in concrete design mixes
3. Easier addition of admixtures
4. Faster and speedier construction
5. Reduced inventories, material handling and storage of raw materials at sites
6. Savings in labour requirements, labour and supervision costs
7. Reduced wastage of materials
Using RMX is an environmental friendly practice that ensures a cleaner work place with minimal
disturbance to the surroundings. This makes its utility more significant in crowded cities and
sensitive localities. By contrast, conventional methods of making, transporting and using
concrete at most construction sites are relatively labour-intensive and suffer from various
Therefore, using Ready Mixed Concrete can prove to be more cost effective over the span of the
project while ensuring that structures are built faster and using concrete that comes with higher
levels of quality assurance.
