Ready Mix USA
Ready Mix USA is a division of the Hidalgo, Mexico-based CEMEX construction materials supplier. The company was formed in 1995 from the sale of assets from Reynolds Ready Mix to Paul Bryant Jr's Green Group, Inc.. The company expanded its facilities in the southeast in a series of joint ventures with CEMEX. Bryant exercised options to sell Green Group's interest in the joint ventures for $350 million in 2011.
Ready Mix USA operates hundreds of mixing plants serviced by twelve distribution terminals in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, which are in turn supplied by CEMEX-owned cement mills in Demopolis, Alabama and Clinchfield, Georgia. The company's divisional headquarters office is located at 2570 Ruffner Road in Irondale.
Ready Mix USA is a corporate sibling of Block USA and Landscape USA, manufacturers of pre-cast concrete products. Until 2010 the company operated a concrete mixing plant adjacent to Malfunction Junction in downtown Birmingham. Its Aggegates USA subsidiary was sold to Vulcan Materials Company in 2017.
