Changes to Allied Concrete service

Balclutha Immaculate Fleet

AML Limited (AML) is a joint venture between Allied Concrete Limited (ACL) and Holcim New Zealand Limited (Holcim). This joint venture operates a number of concrete plants, which trade under the brands of Allied Concrete in the North Island and Ashby’s Ready Mixed in the South Island.

Allied Concrete and Holcim have mutually agreed to further their business strategies independently and conclude this joint venture. Subject to New Zealand regulatory approvals, the new operational arrangements will be in place from November 2023.

As a result of this, Holcim will operate the majority of plants in the North Island under the Holcim brand, which include Avondale, Bombay and Horotiu. Holcim will also operate Ashby’s Ready Mixed in Christchurch, under its existing brand.

Allied Concrete will operate the Silverdale, Penrose, and Hautapu (Cambridge) plants in the North Island.

AML will continue to operate its Gisborne, Nuhaka Quarry, and Whanganui plants.

Allied Concrete's South Island plants, from Nelson to Invercargill, are unaffected by this announcement and will continue to operate business as usual.

From now until completion in early November 2023, it’s business as usual with us; place your orders and we will continue to fulfil them.

All customers and suppliers will be contacted over the coming weeks, to discuss what will happen after the completion date.

We are committed to maintaining the high standard of service you are accustomed to throughout this period. We strongly value our business relationships, and we are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition.

If you have any questions or require further information, please reach out to our customer support team on 0800 245 265 (0800 C4L AML) (Mon-Fri 8am – 5pm).
