The Batched on Site Association (BSA), of which Mixamate Managing Director, Chris Smith, is the Chairman, is this month featured in Quarry Management magazine, as the Association launches its first Industry Charter.
The BSA is the self-regulating body representing the UK's mobile batching plant operators, a sector that contributes approximately £170m to the UK economy.
The new Charter represents an evolution of the Association's original Code of Practice, which has been maintained and updated since the BSA's formation in 2007. It provides, amongst other things, specific guidelines on the introduction of under-run bars to increase cycle safety.

The Batched on Site Association today announced the launch of its first ever Industry Charter, including a Declaration of Adherence to be signed by all members.
Mixamate has launched a brand new Concrete Calculator App. The FREE app is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, and facilitates calculations for screed as well as concrete.
Mixamate was recently featured in Professional Builder Magazine, who were reporting on the launch of our brand new Concrete Calculator App.
The app has been developed exclusively by Mixamate as a tool for on-site use both on and offline. This allows it to be used in areas of low connectivity, such as when calculating the materials required for a basement job. It also allows users to call Mixamate from directly within the app, immediately placing an order with a member of their dedicated team based on the calculations they have just made.
“Reassurance in your measurements is very important when you’re running around on site overseeing a thousand things at once,” said Chris Smith, Managing Director for Mixamate. “Because of our heritage and brand reputation, our customers trust us on a daily basis to help them with their concrete and screed calculations. We therefore wanted to develop that concept further and give them a real working tool that they could take with them onto a site, supported by the Mixamate name and with a direct line into our dedicated team. The Mixamate branded concrete and screed calculator app does just that.”

Unlike large ready mix concrete delivery firms, one of the advantages of using Mixamate’s nimble mix on site delivery service is that we are able to provide flexible delivery times. This includes night jobs, which are often essential for some of our customers, especially when emergency concreting work needs to take place.
