About Procter Cast Stone
Procter Cast Stone was originally established in 1996 by Procter Bros who began their business in 1740 by the middle of 2020 the business was operating 5 separate divisions across the UK.
During the 18th and 19th centuries the business was mainly involved in the manufacture of a wide range of agricultural and domestic wire products from a number of small factories in Yorkshire.
The trading name of Procter Bros was introduced in 1884 by John and Charles Procter, and it was under their control that the company really started to develop its identity as specialist wire workers.
With the outbreak of the First World War the company had gained considerably in stature and was involved in numerous government contracts, one particular instance being the supply of strong woven wire for use as a bomb proof guard over the roof of Buckingham Palace.
In the twenties and thirties the company continued to develop its manufacturing base with a wide range of products such as machine guards, riddles, sieves, fireguards and wire fencing being produced.
During the Second World War output was dramatically changed with the company supplying the military with parts for Bailey Bridges, parachute frames, and special wire mesh suitable for aircraft landing strips in sandy or marshy locations and fencing for virtually all the country’s aerodromes.
After the war the company reverted to its pre-war manufacturing base, supplying both the retail and industrial sectors through the fifties and into the early sixties.
In the mid-sixties the business was restructured to concentrate exclusively on the specialist fencing and machine guarding sectors of the industry.
During 2010 we realised that clients preferred a turn-key manufacture and installation proposal so Procter Cast Stone established an in-house installation division. This now installs a wide variety of exceptional cast stone products across the UK.
In August 2020 Newlay Cast Stone Limited acquired the business and its assets and continue to trade under the name of Procter Cast Stone.
Procter Cast Stone continue to combine the best aspects of traditional craftsmanship and care for its customers and employees, with up to date technology and production methods.
