Service, quality and people. These are the three elements that inform Wainwright’s distinctive culture.

We consistently deliver the highest standards of service to our customers, always going the extra mile to meet their needs.

We supply the best-quality construction materials  and provide high-quality contracting services.

We have people at the very heart of our business. Our workforce is cared for and respected, ensuring it delivers the very best for our clients throughout the South West.


In a dangerous industry, it’s imperative to pay close attention to Health & Safety. Wainwright has an enviable record in this area, and received the John Crabbe Memorial Trophy for Outstanding Excellence in Health and Safety from the Mineral Products Association in 2012.

We strive to make the quarry and any site we work on as safe as possible. That means training our staff, providing them with the appropriate equipment, and ensuring they look out for the wellbeing of the people around them.

In an industry that relies on natural resources, it’s vital that we do our bit to safeguard the environment. That’s why we strive to minimise the impact of our activities on the world around us, and have a sustainability programme to safeguard biodiversity at our quarry.

We plant trees, provide wildlife havens and offer education  about ecological care. We use recycled materials wherever possible, and invest in the most efficient extraction and production techniques available.

In these ways and more, we leave the lightest possible footprint on the planet, helping to preserve it for future generations.


When a company has been trading in the same place since 1891, it forms a close connection with the people around it.

So it should come as no surprise that Wainwright supports the local community through charity work, open days and educational activities.

As a major employer, and a customer of more than 140 local businesses, Wainwright is vital to the Somerset economy. We take this responsibility very seriously, and do all we can to safeguard the wellbeing of both our staff and supplier community.
