The Need

At Grand Rapids Gravel Company, Michigan, it became necessary to relocate a high-production plant outside city limits for easier access to a new market and faster supply of raw materials. After this great success, they purchased a second plant with a 12 yd³ RollMaster® reversing drum mixer and more storage capacity to replace their old flagship plant situated in the middle of Grand Rapids, which was unable to keep-up with increased demand.

BMH Solution

In addition to the 12 yd³ central mix plant with 800 tons of cement and 1 600 tons of aggregate storage, BMH Systems designed and supplied the steel frame for the building and the aggregate heating system.
