The demand for reliable, quality ready-mix has never been higher. The challenges brought by the Covid-19 Pandemic to an already difficult operating environment makes your choice of construction site suppliers critical to the success of all construction projects.
The need for effective supply chains delivering top quality materials at very competitive prices is more essential than ever, with increasingly complex projects being executed in decreasing time frames. Procurement that fits the needs of the project whilst controlling costs must maintain consistent quality control, ensure uninterrupted supply while establishing long-term business relationships to ensure profitability of current and future projects. Suppliers offering a full package with a reputation of delivering quality products at the right time gives contractors an enormous advantage in the construction process.
THE QUICK GROUP
Quicksand & Brick Supplies and Quick Ready-Mix have been leaders in Gauteng supplying sand, aggregates, bricks, cement and ready-mix concrete to the civil, commercial and residential construction industry.
Quicksand was established in 1991 by the CEO and Founder Stef Botha to be a reliable supplier of building materials the construction sector sorely needed. Delivering to Centurion, Midrand, Johannesburg’s Northern suburbs, Bronkhorstspruit, Pretoria North, West and East, and Kempton Park, with a fleet of over 80 vehicles, the company is able to supply to smaller owner-builder projects as well as large-scale civil and commercial projects.
A NETWORK OF SUBSTANCE
Sand, aggregates, bricks and cement is sourced through a well-developed network of quarries, mines, factories and manufacturers in and around Gauteng enabling the company to offer customers a wide variety of materials to suite each project’s specific needs. Integral to the company’s success is its focus on the optimal utilization of its fleet, equipment and personnel to ensure reliable and cost-effective service delivery. This is facilitated through its rigorous fleet management systems and in-house workshop coupled with state-of-the-art technology.
QUICK MIX ESTABLISHED ON SOLID GROUND
Quick-Mix started operations in 2005 when an opportunity was identified to diversify Quicksand’s current product offering to its established customer base to include ready-mix concrete. Due to the reputation of Quicksand and its ability to supply to large and small projects, Quick-Mix soon became a supplier of
superior quality concrete of choice, and today operates from three batching plants located within Gauteng.
While Quick-Mix initially focused on serving small to medium sized projects, the company’s drive for perfection and strict quality control measures together with the backing of some of the best concrete technologists in the industry, has seen Quick-Mix being gain a substantial share of a market served by several larger listed ready-mix companies.
With a strong focus on technical aspects of concrete, as well as exploring innovative solutions, Quick-Mix is able not only to deliver standard concrete products of exceptional quality, it is able to successfully fulfill the needs of a niche market in the supply of decorative and highly technical concrete products.
Synergy, synchronisation and service
With the synergies created between the two companies, customers benefit from a one-stop-shop for aggregates, bricks, cement and ready-mix concrete setting it apart from all other role players in the industry.
The group’s strong focus on values of quality, integrity, reliability and respect has been carried forward by the second generation of management who continue to build on the successes of the past while constantly looking at new and innovative ways to grow and strengthen the Group for the future.
