In collaboration with the City of Westfield, Shelby Materials has agreed to relocate five miles west of its current Westfield, Indiana ready-mix concrete plant location to allow for continued community growth.
The former plant location on northeast corner of Spring Mill Road and SR 32 is slated for a new multi-use development project – Spring Mill Centre – that will bring additional retail, office and industrial space. Additionally, a new Meijer store is slated for south side of State Road 32.
Shelby Materials’ new Westfield-based facility is located on a 10-acre site at 18050 Mule Barn Road, just five miles west of the original site.
Shelby Materials will use the relocation as an opportunity to upgrade its Westfield plant to better serve customers north of Indianapolis, including Carmel, Noblesville, Zionsville, Westfield, Sheridan, Whitestown and Lebanon, as well as customers in the outlying areas of Tipton and Boone counties, with increased production capacity and an integrated batching system.
“It’s a win-win for the community and our team,” said Shelby Materials President, Matt Haehl. “We knew in 2009 when we purchased the original site at Spring Mill Road and SR 32 that it was only a temporary location for us. Now, we’re putting down permanent roots in Westfield. We look forward to growing our community involvement and continuing to serve the residential and commercial concrete needs of Hamilton, Tipton and Boone counties.”
The state-of-the-art plant includes a dual batch operation with a horizontal central mix and dry batch capabilities and a highly controlled unique reclaim process.
The new plant also features an energy saving 7.2 million BTU instant water heater for heating aggregates. The instant 180 degree water coupled with heated sand makes Shelby Materials the go-to choice for winter concrete for many Central Indiana contractors.
