Tarmac Buxton Lime has been at the forefront of lime and limestone production for over 100 years, pioneering innovative solutions for specialist applications and consistently setting the standard for quality and purity.
Buxton Lime Firms (BLF) was formed in 1891, following the amalgamation of 14 lime and limestone companies operating in the Buxton area.
1895 - 1915
Between 1895 and 1915 a further nine quarries were started or bought, cementing the company’s dominant position in the UK market.
1926 - 1929
BLF became part of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in 1926, and the development of Tunstead, the largest limestone quarry in the UK, began in 1929.
In 2015 the business was acquired by CRH Plc. With operations in Germany, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Poland and Russia, we are now the second largest producer in Europe.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. The cornerstone of our vision; the driving force behind our values and strategy. Sustainability guides our actions and the way we work, because it is central to not just the financial success of our company, but also to the health and wellbeing of the communities in which we work and the future of the environment upon which we all rely.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
We are committed to building a ‘Zero Harm’ culture that prioritises people’s health, safety and well-being, and targets continuous improvement. Our goal is to ensure no one who works for us, or with us, comes to any harm. We want a business where both employees, customers and contractors believe all incidents are preventable and understand that health and safety should never be compromised (“Zero long term Harm”).
