Having specialised in the supply of natural roofing slates since 1929, our reputation speaks for itself and our depth of knowledge is unbeatable.
In the early days our company was one of only a handful of original Main Agents appointed by the Welsh & Westmorland Quarries. These days however, Spain rather than Wales is the world's largest producer of natural roofing slate, with China fast emerging as a strong contender for this Crown. The general growth of imported products throughout the UK since the early 1970's, propagated by strong customer demand, has seen a switch in our companies emphasis and focus. Our credentials are proven having imported Spanish slates for almost thirty years, since 1976 and Chinese slates for over twelve years, since 1999.
To assist in the development and management of our co-operation with China, we have our own registered company based in Xiamen, South East China, to ensure all goods are competitively priced and produced to meet exacting specifications and quality control procedures. Our ongoing programme of investment in capital equipment together with the people involved through the processes, ensure peace of mind for our customers.
As specialist bulk importers, we stock the most varied and comprehensive range of natural roofing slates, available in the UK. This enables us to supply any quantity, of any grade, at the most competitive price.
We have an extensive choice of colours, sizes, grades and thickness, including slate and halves, double and eaves slates, backed up with relevant industry testing and performance guarantees up to 50 year.
