Our Meldreth site

Meldreth, Nr Royston, Hertfordshire SG8 5RL

We produce profiled sheeting

We are the UK market leader of fibre cement profiled sheeting, with a thriving site based in a rural area in North Hertfordshire. There are over 100 people working here, in a wide range of roles encompassing Production, Engineering, Administration, Safety and Quality.

With its many benefits, fibre cement is a very versatile and hugely successful building material. Its flexibility and pliability before setting mean it can be moulded into three-dimensional shapes either by hand moulding or by fully automated machinery. We provide both these services. We also use water based paints to offer our products to customers in a wide range of colours.

We recognise that our people are an important part of our continued success.

  • We pride ourselves on developing our people, and regularly work with our colleagues at other sites in the UK and Europe. This collaboration helps us to remain market leaders.
  • We use industry standard best practice techniques to make sure we safely optimise our processes and minimise waste. To achieve this, we focus on our employees and offer a wide range of opportunities for personal growth and development.
