Ready-Mix vs Onsite Batching
What the price difference between ready-mix vs onsite batching.
The answer, in a nutshell, is around £25 m3
That’s £2,500 for every 100 m3 or £25,000 for every 1,000m3
Price comparison analysis between onsite and ready-mix
Using a small concrete batching plant in this example a B120 16 m3/hr – Daily Output 128m3
C50 Ready Mix concrete 128 m3 @ £98 = £12,544
Using the B120 with the same mix with a 75% utilisation factor
Onsite 128 m3 @ £73 = £9,344
SAVING £3,200 for a single day’s production. £3,200 / 128 m3 = £25m3
Scale Up To See The Investment Opportunity
To scale up a little to a concrete batching plant producing 30 m3/hr
A 30m3/hr concrete batching plant produces 240m3 of concrete a day. The cost of the plant will be a lot less than you would think. The payback period is between two and four months.
Take a look at the investment analysis below:
Specification as the drawing
Fibo B1800 20/30m3/hr
14m belt conveyor
30m3 horizontal cement silo
4.5m cement auger
Power supply by customer
100% Capacity 57,600m3/year
Profit based on £25m3 = £1,440,000
Payback period 6,140 m3 or 26 days (2 months) at full capacity
50% Capacity 28,800m3/year
Profit based on £25m3 = £720,000
Payback period 6,140 m3 or 52 days (4 months) at 50% capacity
Capacity calculation based on the output of the plant at 30m3/hr x 8-hour working shift x 5 x 48 weeks = 57,600m3/year
The return on investment is indicative only. We can calculate your actual return on investment when we understand your mixes and material input costs more accurately, together with your selling costs.
We used a conservative profit of £25m3 for the business case. This can be improved using recycled materials, replacement cement and will also depend on your sales capability. We can support you with your mix designs.
