How the Concrete Network is Changing the Concrete Industry

The concrete industry has undergone substantial major technological changes, creating an extensive range of concrete mixes that are available for virtually any construction application.

The Concrete Network (TCN) is the largest independent network of concrete suppliers nationwide, and its approach to concrete supply and customer service is altering the way the industry operates. Here’s how…

Improving logistics

The core of The Concrete Network is its nationwide coverage and focus on efficient logistical management. While TCN can supply individuals and construction sites with specific concrete mixes, its their ability to coordinate the delivery of multiple mixes to multiple sites that is one of their largest benefits.

For site and procurement managers, TCN provides an invaluable service. The extensive supply network allows managers to order bulk concrete orders and facilitate for them to be delivered to different worksites around the UK, meeting strict deadlines and the individual requirements of each site project.

This helps to improve the efficiency of concrete delivery, covering the largest construction projects in a streamlined fashion.

Local supply

As a network of suppliers, TCN is able to facilitate local deliveries for worksites throughout the country. This means that, even for small scale works, the right mix can be found from the closest supplier at the best price. Much legwork is involved within the concrete industry, particularly around the reliable sourcing of mixes. TCN operates in such a way that this part of the process is handled in much more direct and convenient manner.

Customer service

Despite being a national company, TCN’s local focus has been a vital part of the business since its inception, allowing TCN to provide a personal service to clients, whilst maintaining a larger scale operation.


TCN is building its network of suppliers so there are even more options available to customers looking for any amount of concrete wherever in the UK.

The company has entered its second year of business, so expansion will be the focus for the future, which will involve recruiting more supply partners to maximise their coverage and their supply potential.


The Concrete Network has created a model of business aimed at improving the way customers choose, source and receive their concrete. TCN has used a logistical structure to offer commercial and domestic clients with any type of concrete they require – with huge benefit coming to those in need of large amounts of concrete, split across multiple sites, with a tight deadline.
