A Brief History
C & H Quickmix Limited has been trading for 50 years and was formed in 1965 with a joining together of R G Carter Limited and W J Hall Extractors (Alderby) Limited. This successful partnership continued up to the end of the 1980's when the Hall's share was bought by Tarmac Limited.
The main business is Ready Mixed Concrete and ancillary products.
Over the past few years C & H Quickmix Limited has confirmed its position as one of the leading suppliers of Ready Mixed Concrete in the area.
The aim of the company is to supply the construction industry, through a network of strategically placed distribution depots ranging from Sheringham on the north Norfolk coast to Beccles in north Suffolk, although an ever increasing proportion of our business was coming from the smaller user for private uses.
As a result of this the company commenced trading in the minimix market, as Anglian Minimix aimed directly at the smaller end of the marketplace, i.e. small builders and D.I.Y customers.
This began in 1995 with moderate results, however, it has steadily increased and now operates 4 Minimixers throughout the area. The company is committed to growing this area of activity and will increase the number of vehicles it operates through a steady and controlled expansion programme.The introduction of Anglian Minimix to its portfolio allowed C & H Quickmix to supply concrete to any size contract from 0.5m3 to mass concrete pours.C & H has successfully completed many large contracts and has been responsible for supplying concrete to contracts such as the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, various contracts on the U.E.A. campus, many road contracts including a section of the Norwich Southern Bypass, the A11 duelling and more recently the New Outer Harbour at Great Yarmouth.
The company is committed to extending its supply network and in 2006 C & H purchased an existing ready mix concrete plant in King's Lynn from a competitor. This has given it full coverage of the Norfolk area.
The Plant benefited from extensive refurbishment work duirng 2007.
C & H continued with its programme to update all its existing plants and 2008 saw Great Yarmouth plant undergo extensive refurbishment and now boasts the best plant in the area by far.
