New Zealand’s first carbon-conscious concrete is finally here – made locally with Eco-cem.
Since production began in 2012, HR Cement has been focused on innovative products using world leading raw materials. Our latest release is Eco-cem, which takes advantage of the carbon reduction properties of blast furnace slag (BFS) to make the best cement substitute available. We are the first company to process BFS in New Zealand for a cleaner concrete choice.

How does it work?
What our clients say about us
“Our readymix plant in Whanganui has been using HRCL cement for the past 4 years now. Since switching to HRCL we haven’t looked back as we’ve been stoked with their cement products and willingness to go the extra mile for us. As a family business we’re also committed to keeping it local whenever we can so it’s a real bonus for us to be able to source high-quality cement that’s manufactured right here in New Zealand”
Bowers & Son Limited has been a customer since the early days of HR Cement, supplying both our busy Te Awamutu and Otorohanga plants. With any business relationship, communication is key to success, and this is a strength of the HR Cement operations team. HR Cement’s team take the time to understand our businesses’ requirements and to ensure we have reliable and consistent supply of product. Always professional as well as willing to find ways to add value to our business, we would recommend HR Cement to anyone looking for a cement supplier with a difference.
We switched to HR Cement’s Xtra-Cem a few years ago and we’ve had absolutely no issues with it. Consistent Product, Industry-leading logistics and customer service from Adrian, Great sales back-up from Cam.
We know we’re not a large user of Xtra-Cem but we are treated as if we are.
We were new to the concrete industry when we approached HR Cement for supply.
They were super supportive and a huge help to building the successful Concrete Manufacturer we are today. Not only do we get impeccable support and advice but we are also getting supplied a quality product that sets us apart from anyone else in our region.
It is also a pleasure to be on board with a company that is innovative and expanding its cement options to become more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
At WestBay Concrete, we are proud to have solely used HR cement since 2018 when we commenced trading. Dealing with the HR team on a daily basis, we find service is prompt and efficient with zero runouts to date. We look forward to including new cementitious alternatives from HR in the near future to help reduce our concrete’s carbon footprint.
