Holcim and ACL reveal New Zealand concrete plants plans


Holcim and Allied Concrete have decided to go their own way as part of AML Limited’s concrete plant sales. 

AML is a joint venture between Holcim and Allied Concrete, which trades under Allied Concrete in the North Island and Ashby’s Ready Mixed in the South Island.  

Holcim will operate 20 plants in the North Island, including Avondale, Bombay and Horotiu. The company will also operate Ashby’s Ready Mixed in Christchurch, under its existing brand. 

Holcim said in a statement the new arrangement would be operational from November 2023.
