Manufacturing concrete milestones

It is not often that a company can manufacture its own milestones, but that is exactly what Hills Quarry Products has achieved when it produced its millionth cubic metre of ready mixed concrete this month.

Group director, Peter Andrew, said: “Since opening our first concrete plant back in 2005, our business has grown despite some very tough trading conditions over the years. We now have five plants spread across Wiltshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Dorset all selling a quality certified product that customers can rely on.”

Hills marked the occasion with the production of a replica cube which now stands proudly in the company’s offices in Swindon. Mini concrete cubes have also been distributed to employees and customers to mark the occasion and ideas on how to use the cubes are being shared on Twitter using the hashtag #MillionCube.

Interesting facts:
• Placed end to end, 1 million cubes of 1 cubic metre each will reach further than the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats
• 1 million cubic metres of concrete will fill 400 Olympic sized swimming pools

Significant projects include:
• Redevelopment of former RAF Lyneham new training School Lyneham
• Waitrose, Malmesbury
• Brewery Square, designed by Terence Conran, Dorchester
• Poundbury, an urban planning development by HRH the prince of Wales, Dorchester
• The Museum of Jurassic Marine Life, Kimmeridge
