In the late 1970s we became one of the forerunners in manufacturing block paving – or ‘Pavia’, as it was originally called. Now, more than 75 years later, we are one of the top paving and walling manufacturers in the UK and Ireland, and pride ourselves on our world-class technology and the unrivalled quality of our products.
