About Us

A wealth of experience and expertise

Community Involvement and Social Value

As a longstanding East Kent-based business with a history that stretches over 145 years, we are a major local employer. As such, we recognise the importance of ensuring that our business activities deliver real and tangible benefits to the local communities in which we work, and are strongly committed to demonstrating this in a number of ways.

Our Social Value philosophy and policy is centred around the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) developed to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all by 2030.

Charity Donations and Fundraising

We keenly support a number of charitable causes, regularly making donations and agreeing sponsorship of local clubs and other community groups. Our chosen charity of the year for 2023 is the Margate RNLI Lifeboat Station, for which we have organised a variety of fundraising events throughout the year, including a charity golf day, a go-karting tournament and a 5-a-side football competition.


We are proud main sponsors of Kent Cricket and Ramsgate Football Club, supporting their wider community activities such as the Health, Activities and Food holiday programme for local schoolchildren.

Kent-Based Supply Chain

As a major employer in East Kent, the vast majority of our supply chain and material suppliers are Kent-based businesses with whom we have worked closely with for a number of years. We continually look to expand our network of relationships and regularly attend 'Meet the Buyer' events as part of our commitment to creating opportunities for new people and businesses.

We operate a highly successful EATP which creates and provides opportunities for a whole host of different people, including but not limited to young persons, over 50s, hard to reach groups including long term unemployed (NEETs), school and college leavers, lone parents, ex-offenders and ex-service personnel in Kent.
