Quality in concrete depends on getting a number of things right the first time, every time. Apart from the technical specifications of the mix itself, the ‘use by’ date for concrete is counted in minutes rather than days, weeks or months.
The logistics involved in timely deliveries are very complex and require detailed co-ordinated forward planning. Providing what the customer wants is what we call quality through expert management and is the key to a successful Metromix operation.
The high quality of Metromix concrete and quarry products and our delivery services is due to the strict application of a comprehensive Quality Assurance System applied to production, purchasing, distribution, sales and administrative processes throughout the company. We manufacture our products to Australian Standards and pride ourselves on quality and service that is above and beyond our customer expectations.
Through the combined operations of Able Metromix and Metromix, small trucks are able to provide our customers with a wide range of delivery options. This versatility is necessary for handling delivery to physically difficult locations which have restricted or complicated access and for situations where first class communication skills are essential.
Technology plays a key role in our manufacturing and distribution process. Our batching technology ensures accurate batching and delivery to the customer is faster than ever. Our GPS navigation systems in our trucks track all product deliveries and monitor driver fatigue.
At Metromix, we are constantly looking for different ways to improve to make ordering concrete and quarry products easier for our customers.
Big Enough To Deliver, Small Enough To Care.
Getting it out of the ground is only a part of what we do. The next and often most critical element of our order fulfillment process is the actual delivery of aggregates, concrete and manufactured concrete products.
Metromix has extensive delivery capabilities with trucks of various sizes which allow us to deliver to areas of varying difficulty.
As well as servicing our concrete plants and quarry customers, our vehicles are also available for haulage services and product sourcing.
Many of our drivers have been with us for over 20 years, some with up to 35 years of truck driving experience – we employ the best!
Our trucks are fitted with GPS tracking devices to ensure efficiency on delivery and all of our drivers are fatigued monitored to ensure they are in peak form when delivering your order.
It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are – Big Enough To Deliver, Small Enough To Care.
