About Us




Product Development

Environment & Sustainability

GS Foam Concrete Ltd was founded in 1984 by Managing Director, Glen Jones. A privately owned company, GS Foam Concrete Ltd broke new ground as the first company to manufacture foam concrete for the UK Construction Industry. Over the years Glen and his team have built up a wealth of experience producing foam concrete for a variety of applications. Established as the ‘expert’ in this highly specialised field, GS Foam Concrete Ltd holds ‘preferred supplier’ status with many of its UK blue chip clients. A proven track record and enviable reputation in the industry ensures that GS Foam Concrete Ltd will continue to grow and thrive in this highly competitive industry, providing customers with unparalleled product / application expertise and service excellence. GS Foam Concrete Ltd consistently delivers a high quality product and service to its customers. This is only possible, because all plant and equipment is designed and built in-house. As a result, GS Foam Concrete Ltd can offer a wide range of materials for many applications. In addition, Glen Jones is committed to GS Foam Concrete Ltd’s programme of ‘continuous improvement’ seeking to further develop the properties of foamed concrete, in order to extend its potential uses within the construction industry. GS Foam Concrete Ltd takes its responsibility towards the environment very seriously. The company is currently undertaking trials with some of the largest ready-mix concrete companies in the UK. The objective of these trials is to replace a percentage of Cement and Quarried material with by-products such as PFA (Pulverised Fuel Ash) and recycled material such as Glass. Further information on these trials can be obtained by contacting GS Foam Concrete Ltd and updates will be published on the company’s website as they become available.

The complex production process for Foam Concrete and the

= CONCRETE application of the finished product for the right environment requires the specialist skills and expertise of GS Foam Concrete Ltd. The process consists of two elements; base material plus a foam additive.

Base Material

Foam Additive

Foam Concrete

The base material consists of varying quantities of cement, sand and water (dependant on strength and consistency required) which forms a slurry type mix. This mix is usually supplied in ready-mix concrete trucks. The foam additive is produced on site in our specially adapted foam generators. The additive is injected into the back of the concrete mixer truck to produce the foam concrete. The volume of foam added is dependent on the target density and strength requirement. Once the foaming stage is complete, the foam concrete is then ready for application - either direct from the truck or via GS Foam Concrete’s specially adapted pump. See below for some of the features and benefits that customers experience when using GS Foam Concrete:
