We are a family owned and run business with a trading history which reaches back to the 1830’s. The first trading records show activity in North African phosphate and manganese, which were sold as fertiliser and colouring agents for glass. Over the years the business has continually moved forward. In the 1860’s oil and grease production was introduced into the business portfolio. In the 1920’s we were one of the first companies in the UK to begin the manufacture bitumen emulsions. In 2000 we ventured into asphalt and coated stone production and in 2012 invested in a brand new state of the art Benninghoven asphalt plant, which is based on the same site as our manufacturing base on the banks of the river Tyne in Newcastle upon Tyne. Building on the success of the asphalt plant in Newcastle we expanded further into the asphalt market. In 2017 we added another brand new state of the art Benninghoven asphalt plant to our portfolio. Located at Hespin Wood north of Carlisle . This next generation asphalt plant has a larger capacity than its sister plant and enables us to provide a variety of quality and innovative solutions for our customers.
