Newton Waterproofing is an independent supplier of structural waterproofing systems, damp proofing systems, water control products and drainage products.
The family-run business caters for a wide range of clients, including homeowners, architects and contractors. It deals with everything from the smallest domestic projects to high-end residential properties, new build developments, commercial buildings and extensive civil projects.
Over the past five years, the business has enjoyed a period of steady continual growth. Turnover has increased from around £4 million in 2013 to more than £7 million in 2017. The company is aiming to reach an annual turnover of £10 million in 2020. To achieve this goal, it will invest in product development, tackling the waste produced as a by-product of the industry and offering training and development opportunities to all employees.
Digital marketing manager, Becky Malcom, said: “Innovation in the industry has brought new materials and techniques into the marketplace, and we intend to be at the forefront, packing and distributing them in the UK. We are the oldest UK suppliers of structural waterproofing systems, and our growth is down to innovation, Waterproofing knowledge, family ethos and our independent status”.
“The waterproofing industry is competitive, new suppliers, installers and products are available, but it is complex, and the repercussions of waterproofing mistakes are costly. “We are continually innovating, delivering new services such as the Newton Waterproofing Index, the Membrane Recycling Scheme, and the Newton App.
“Our chairman, managing director and marketing director are all members of the founding Newton family.
Their knowledge and experience enables us to attract, employ and retain some of the best waterproofing technical talent in the industry, so that we remain one step ahead of our competitors.”
