Did you know there are 2 market segments for concrete?
The precast market is the other segment in the concrete world. It’s found in precast products such as bridges, the sides of some buildings, and the round tubes being buried for septic systems. The concrete is poured into a reusable mold called a form and cured in a controlled environment. Over 50% of the precast plants actually get their concrete from ready-mix trucks. When a big job is needed, you might see a lineup of ready-mix trucks going into a precast plant!
So, what is Gates’ role in this market? Gates quality fleet and hydraulics products will help eliminate the concrete market’s biggest potential issue: downtime. Concrete is perishable and, depending on the recipe, is good for only 2-3 hours. With such a short shelf life, any breakdowns are time sensitive. Components need to be reliable with quick repair options if things go wrong en-route.
