Manchester Street cnr Railway Terrace, Mile End SA 5031



Hallett are Company Sponsors & great supporters of the Concrete Institute in South Aussie and are making this unique plant available to us for a site tour.

This plant is capable of 180m3 per hour and is a state of the art wet batch plant, unlike anything ever seen, the inner-suburban Mile End project, which was completed in March 2019, is world class, and incorporates innovative solutions to make sure it integrates seamlessly into the sensitive surrounding area.

The plant shares a site with a collection of unlikely neighbours, including a chocolate producer, a milk plant and various new car dealerships.

Trucks pull into the warehouse through curtain doors that open and shut automatically. The stone and sand are offloaded into underground bins and immediately transported to the next station, where they are sorted into seven different bins by product type. All of this is done via conveyors: the materials stay on the conveyor and are weighed using a weigh belt system, which is another groundbreaking innovation in this field.

The plant  is filled with smart automation and features a wet mixer, one of the first of its kind in Australia. 

 This is a unique opportunity so don't miss out. Numbers are very limited so register now!
