Why our batching plant is one of the best in sri lanka....

Since this is one of the initial posts on our official blog, i thought i would post a brief introduction of our batching plant and reveal who we are. Sierra Ready-mix (pvt) Ltd is a company mainly in production for ready-mix concrete. We also does other concrete based precast products such as blocks, paving blocks and also concrete curbs, We have many other projects proposed for future but above mentioned are the ones that are currently ongoing projects.


Environmental friendly production

We are the only concrete batching plant in Sri Lanka which is the production is being carried out with no effect to the surrounding natural environment. All of our operations are carefully being carried out in such a way that it will not cause any damage to natural environment. We are practicing few well known methods to reduce the pollution from our productions to the max. Here are few of them.
  • A teak plantation is being carried out within the premises to minimize the dust released to the environment from the production.


  • The food and canton waste is been used to make natural compost fertilizer. Our staff is also being trained and educated to engage in home gardening activities using home made compost. Even the rain water is being carefully harvested to use on washing and gardening purposes. Basically in Sierra Readymix (Pvt) Ltd, nothing goes to waste.






  • The cement and concrete mixture that is left in the transport trucks after product delivery is been carefully extracted and properly treated. Then the extracted material is been re-used to make precast products such as Concrete blocks, Paving Blocks etc.
