Though many industries have been severely impacted by COVID-19, the construction industry has not drastically suffered and construction activity has not entirely been suspended. In fact, mega projects such as the construction of the New Capital, the New Alamein City and overall road construction have continued operation, although in a confined and controlled environment. To complete such up-scale projects and meet delivery deadlines, ready mix and construction companies remain determined to expand their fleet of machinery and have put their trust in Putzmeister concrete pumps.  To insure reliability, consistency and high performance, Cemento, Redcon’s ready-mix arm and Express, have trusted IDP with the supply of two brand new M56-5.
