    Thanks for a successful UK Concrete Show

    We would like to thank all the visitors to the stand at the UK Concrete Show at the NEC Birmingham, last week 27th - 28th February.

    Speedcrete exhibited several brand new products to the UK industry including the Qube plastic concrete test moulds. A revolutionary

    new product allowing for easy transport and de moulding of concrete test cubes. The Powerblanket was also on display. A electric heated

    curing blanket designed for rapid curing of concrete slabs and precast moulds. The blankets are available in a variety of sizes but the unique

    patented design allows for custom shapes and profiles to be produced upon request. The blankets are ideal for curing and placing concrete when

    the weather is very cold or frozen ground may prevent concrete from being poured.

    Also launching at the show was the opening of our new facilities located in Stafford, just off junction 14 of the M6. This depot will have hire facilities of

    all our major product lines including hydrostatic steer ride on power trowels, roller strikers and more. The depot also features an on site shop for all your

    concrete and masonry ancillaries and equipment.

    The show itself was very well attended with over 6000 visitors, with several large orders being placed at the show we are confident for a return next year with

    more innovative tools for the concrete industry.

    Speedcrete Opens New Stafford Depot

    Speedcrete is proud to announce the acquisition of new trading premises in Stafford, Staffordshire. This new facility will offer a complete range of Speedcrete's rental and sales equipment serving the Midlands and North West.

The depot will specialise in hiring concrete equipment into the Midlands and north west England and north west Wales. It will also stock a full range of trowels, tools and accessories via an on-site shop. It's convenient location ( a mere 2 minutes from Junction 14 M6) provides a strategic vantage point for accessing locations quickly and will help to reduce delivery times (and costs!) to our customers in these areas.

    The depot is currently being adapted to facilitate us operating and will commence trading from the beginning of January 2014. If you are located in these areas and require any products or services  before the start of the new year please contact the main head office on 01722 416196 / [email protected]

    Thank you to all the visitors that attended the Plantworx show last week from Tuesday the 14Th May through to Thursday the 16th May.

With just a few minor development tweeks to resolve the unit is well on the way to a final production model. We also exhibited the new range of Blastrac surface prepartion equipment, with a 735-Pro triple head planetary grinder on the stand and a 265 Scarifier designed for surface removal which was of strong interest.


    Many thanks to all our customers who purchased a 25th anniversary prize draw ticket. There were some amazing prizes on offer, kindly donated by several of our suppliers. Bunyan Industries, Allen Engineering Corporation, & J Lin Corporation. The draw managed to raise over £1500 for the prostrate cancer charity. Plantworx organiser Simon Frere-Cook made the draw on the stand at 3pm on the Thursday.

    Congratulations to all the winners. The winners of each prize are as follows: 1st Place winner of the Chrome Bunyan striker - BC Bartons, 2nd Place winner of the 30" Allen powerfloat -  Supercrete Groundworks, 3rd Place  winner of Hummer concrete vibrator - The Concrete Flooring Company.phil baxter 2nd prize
