History[edit]

Saudi Readymix Concrete Company Ltd. was founded in 1978. Production began with the establishment of the company’s first factory, located in Saihat, Saudi Arabia, and continued and expanded its operations with the establishment of two on-site factories, one in each of Abqaiq and Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

Over the next 20 years, Saudi Readymix continued to grow in size and production by opening a block plant in Jubail, a ready-mixed concrete factory in the 1st industrial City in Dammam, factories outside of the Eastern Province in each of Riyadh and Jeddah, and acquiring its first quarry in Abu Hadriyah (more than 134 km NW of Dammam[8])[9]

In 1998, Saudi Readymix Concrete Company Ltd. merged with Inma Construction Materials Co. Ltd. and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Khalid Ali Alturki & Sons' group of companies (better known as Alturki).[10]
