About the employer

Camfaud’s reputation and core focus on safety, people and reliability has been built on continued investment in people, infrastructure and equipment.

Camfaud are the only U.K. concrete pump company offering a full national service and provide a specialised equipment hire service to the construction industry from our extensive network of hire/service centres and regional depots.

We work across all construction sectors and end markets from tier one contractors to small local builders and domestic customers.

We pride ourselves in having the right solution for every concrete pour, no matter how complex or easy.

Concrete pumping is a "mission-critical" method of concrete placement that requires highly-skilled operators to position a truck-mounted fully-articulating boom for precise delivery of ready-mix concrete from mixer trucks to placing crews on a job site. Camfaud's large fleet of specialised concrete pumping equipment and highly-trained operators position Camfaud to deliver concrete placement solutions that facilitate substantial labour cost savings to customers, shorten concrete placement times, enhance worksite safety and improve construction quality.
