Eastern Readymix was established in 1996 by Johan ver Loren van Themaat.  He was joined in 1998 by Chris Diemont as co-director.  Both directors are registered professional engineers and have between them an excess of 50 year's experience in the concrete construction industry.

Eastern Readymix was one of the first independent (privately owned) readymix companies to join SARMA. SARMA (South African Readymix Association) is a voluntary industry body that has the mission to promote the use of readymixed concrete, act as forum for its members and represent the interests of the industry.

Eastern Readymix annually undergoes a SHREQ audit which is done by SARMA in order to establish if the company complies with all the necessary laws, standards and specifications that are applicable in terms of quality, health, safety and environmental aspects.

Our mission is to deliver quality concrete on time at the correct location at an affordable price. This can only be achieved by adopting the following approach:


  • friendly and efficient sales service
  • use of quality materials
  • market related prices
  • punctual deliveries


We have a dedicated sales team that looks after the client's requirements with regard to specification, quotations and delivery details.

Eastern Readymix also has an associate company, ERM Pumping Services operated by the same staff, which offers a range of concrete pumping services. We have two 36m concrete boom pumps to assist in the placing of concrete at those hard to reach places.
