How Cement is Made

Concrete vs Cement

Paper sacks

BGC Cement offers a large range of packaged cements, cement and lime blends, hydrated lime and drymix products under its BUILDERS CHOICE brand name.

Bagged using a state-of-the-art German engineered and manufactured Haver roto-packer filling machine, we bag over 6,000 sacks per day.

We bag over 6,000 sacks per day

BGC Cement - Builders Choice Paper SacksOnce filled at the roto-packer, the sacks are conveyed to an automatic palletiser. They head through the automatic stretch hood unit, which places a heavy-duty plastic hood over the pallet.
The plastic hood then reduces in size and tightens, firmly holding the products in place and providing protection from the weather.

Packaged goods are available for collection from our Canning Vale depot or delivery.
