Batched On Site Association Appoints New Chairman

The Batched on Site Association (BSA) – the UK Association for Mobile Batching Plant Operators – today announced the appointment of a new Chairman, with a new Agenda to take the organisation into 2013.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 5, 2012 - London, Wednesday 5th October 2012: The Batched on Site Association (BSA) – the UK Association for Mobile Batching Plant Operators – today announced the appointment of a new Chairman, with a new Agenda to take the organisation into 2013. Chris Smith, managing director of Mixamate – the UK’s leading provider of mix-on-site concrete and screed – will take the reins with immediate effect, having succeeded Tom Baker of Eastern Concrete.

The Batched on Site Association

The BSA was launched in 2007 to represent the interests of companies operating Mobile Batching Plants (MBPs). MBP machines come in a variety of specifications but their fundamental distinguishing characteristic is their ability to batch produce products such as concrete, screed, foam, ‘trench fill’, ‘cold tarmac’ and mortar on demand at the point of delivery. The UK batched on site sector is now estimated to be worth £150 million per annum (10% of the total UK Ready Mix market) according to BDS Marketing, with an estimated 500+ vehicles in operation. Since its creation in 2007 the Batched on Site Association has grown to represent 40+ operators.

Technical Innovation

Chris Smith brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the Batched on Site sector and a history of technical innovation with Mixmate. The company’s Conqueror Vehicle is one of the most sophisticated machines in the marketplace, delivering weighed materials on site courtesy of the machine’s on-board computer system.  The company earlier this year also launched a pioneering new Screed Pumping Truck – a machine which allows for the delivery, mixing, and pumping of screed from a single vehicle. With his experience and technical insight, the Mixamate MD provides a leading industry figure to spearhead the future growth of the organisation and the sector:

“I am extremely proud to have been chosen as the new Batched on Site Association Chairman,” said Smith. “This is a challenging time not only for Mobile Batching Plant Operators but also for the industry as a whole, and as niche operators we face particular regulatory challenges that need to be addressed. I hope over the next year to bottom this out, make a drive to increase membership, and broaden the Organisation’s Agenda to take on other issues that affect us.”

The new Chairman also brings with him good relations with the Construction Plant Hire Association (CPA) and the British Aggregates Association (BAA), which he hopes to strengthen even further on behalf of the BSA:

“The industry is stronger united, and in working together we are able to ensure greater standards for our members and their customers. The Batched on Site sector is the fastest growing sector in the Concrete Industry, and I am delighted to take the helm of the Association in such exciting times.”
