Santos Ready Mixed Concrete supplies
concrete products to the entire River-
land region, but offers more than that,
says Paul Santos.
“ The main thing we do is concrete, of
course,” he said.
“But we also have concrete testers that
can go out and test concrete, which any
significant project requires now.
“Another major thing we do is with our
sand plant where we produce different
grades of sand.
“We make sand for concrete and also
the sand that’s used in filtration plants.
“ There’s not a lot of producers around,
so our sand goes to Adelaide and is regrad-
ed and goes into Happy Valley filtration
plant, swimming pool filters and spa filters.
“We also supply Nu-Earth potting mix
and even at the National Wine Centre in
Adelaide, the walls there are made with
“We dug it out because they wanted a
blood-red coloured sand and we have that
kind of sand here.
“We dug a pocket of that out especially
for them and that was trucked to Adelaide
and they used that for the rammed-earth
“Sand is a major business for us, we
supply a lot over to Mildura as well. It
keeps us pretty busy.
“I don’t think Dad imagined it would
grow into what it’s become now.
“We’re working on a computer-con -
trolled plant which is advanced for South
Australia, so we’re investing pretty heavily
in that at the moment and always looking
towards the future.”
So... what does Santos do?
Bill said he, Charlene and their
children Jennifer, Kathryn, John
and Paul wanted to thank Riverlanders
for supporting Santos Ready Mixed
Concrete for 50 years and allowing it to
grow to what it is today.
“We’re certainly very appreciative of
the support from local people,” he said.
“We’d also like to pay tribute to many
of our employees both present and past
who have contributed to the strength of
the company over many years.”
Thanks from the Santos family
