Thomas Concrete Group is on a strategic, intense journey to develop the company for the future. The company focuses on becoming even better at customer service and to build a stronger group. Two years ago, Thomas Concrete Group launched a common brand identity for all subsidiaries. The group is growing and have since 2014 acquired some 25 ready-mixed plants in both USA, Germany and Poland. Earlier this year, a major structural transaction was conducted in Sweden as a step towards a better plant structure and better possibilities to give high quality customer service. The intense development of the company, increased demand for concrete and higher expectations from customers make this a natural step to strengthen the organisation with additional skills.
