Celebrating 18 years of paving success!

We are celebrating our 18 year anniversary today.

In 1997, Peter Watts, Kevin Weston and Mike Newton joined together to set up SureSet UK Ltd. Kevin is now the Managing Director, Peter our Chairman and Mike is now retired and co-owner of StoneSet permeable paving in Australia.

Their combined skills, technical knowledge and will to succeed transformed the concept of clear resin bound permeable paving for external use. They did this using a logical approach to the design of products, to ensure the best possible performance and durability.

Today, despite financial downturns and increasing competition, by maintaining faith in their original philosophy and continual investment in technical experience we remain one of the market leaders in permeable resin bound paving.

We have carved a niche in an ever-expanding industry with our unique discipline of combining outstanding attractiveness and creativity with practicality, sustainability and a commitment to our environment.

There have been many ‘stand out’ moments during these 18 years’, One achievement of which we are particularly proud is our guarantee; when we first began trading we offered a two year guarantee, over time we raised it to five, then seven, then ten, then 15.

From our first installations in 1997 – the driveways of Peter and Mike, we are now installing for household names like Manchester City Football Club and Chessington World of Adventures.

18 years later, our commitment to our vision of being recognised as the market leader and top specialist in permeable resin bound paving is as strong as ever. 

“ Our continued investment into research and development has seen many successes including the addition of seven new resin bound products to our range, staff levels rise from five to 33 and developing our own method of colouring recycled glass. I wonder what the next 18 years will bring!”
