Concrete curing system as a core component in a state of the art concrete block production facility

Laird Brothers, Forfar, Angus DD8 3NQ, United Kingdom


The family-run company Laird Brothers from Forfar in Scotland has 50 employees and is known in large parts of the country as a reliable supplier of concrete. The company is now well prepared for the future with the construction of a new 4,000 m2 production hall at the main plant in Forfar and the acquisition of a new concrete block making machine at the beginning of this year. This investment focuses in partic- ular on the production of high-quality concrete blocks, because the demand for such products has strongly increased in recent years. With the extension of the product portfolio by concrete paving blocks, masonry blocks and split blocks, the cousins Jamie and John, together with both their fathers Jim and Alex, now want to expand further, because as a self-sufficient enterprise the company can draw on almost 70 years of experience with four quarries of its own, three ready-mixed concrete plants, mobile mixing plants for smaller projects, its own fleet of vehicles and an already existing Finlay egg laying concrete block making machine. The first production runs with the new plant began a few weeks ago, marking not only a milestone for the Laird Brothers company, but also a premiere for Rotho of Germany, who supplied the concrete curing system. The newly developed Rotho-ProCure concrete curing system represents the state of the art and has been imple- mented here for the first time in a concrete block production line. The climatic conditions prevailing at this site made the use of this advanced curing and post-treatment system necessary, because widely varying ambient temperatures in combination with constantly changing humid- ity levels in the area mean that homogenisation of the curing process of concrete products is barely possible without sacrificing quality.
