Since being founded back in 1969 as a sibling company within the C.O. Williams Group, Ready-Mix Limited has constantly upgraded its capabilities to keep up with changing market demands and ever-developing technology. Which is why today, over 50 years later, Ready-Mix still retains its position as the leading concrete mix producer in Barbados.
Working out of their modern 20-acre facility at Lears and drawing upon five decades of experience at the highest level in the construction industry, Ready-Mix has firmly established itself as the go-to niche supplier of concrete ready-mix, concrete blocks and Omnidec precast floor systems for commercial and residential projects. Specializing in the manufacture of concrete onsite, the company has earned a solid reputation for its professionalism and ability to provide efficient concrete supply solutions for a wide range of jobs – including the innovative capacity to lay concrete via an asphalt paver to produce a finished wearing surface.
After enjoying a productive year in 2022, Ready-Mix has maintained the positive momentum by investing over BB$6 million into upgrading its facilities, equipment, operating systems and quality-control technology, while also introducing new training schemes and modernizing the concrete and block plants. All with the ultimate aim of achieving even greater efficiency, thereby keeping costs down and passing on those savings to the client in order to remain competitive.
With the construction sector in Barbados looking forward to a busy 2023 and beyond – driven primarily by government initiated civil works and large private sector developments – Ready- Mix is expanding today to prepare for tomorrow. Part of that forward-thinking strategy has been to strengthen the Management Team under the leadership of General Manager Ryan Brooker, and appoint a new Board of Directors, headed by new Chairman Charles ‘Teddy’ Williams, Managing Director Neil Weekes and Director Samantha Nurse.
By investing in refurbished plant and equipment, adopting cutting-edge technology and systems, and revitalizing the entire workforce, Ready-Mix has built a strong foundation to continue its long history of excellence well into the future.
