Knowledge and extensive stocks have earned Seddons an unrivalled reputation
History Built on Solid Foundations
Established in 1897 in Little Hulton near Worsley, Manchester by George and John Seddon, the business gained a reputation for quality and reliability which resulted in it being incorporated as G&J Seddon Limited in 1920. The company became synonymous with quality brickwork, the original trade of the founders.
During the forties and fifties the company’s activities widened and a branch office was opened in Stoke-on-Trent. This became a separate associate company, Seddon (Stoke) Limited. The same period saw the expansion into contractors plant services with the foundation of Seddons (Plant & Engineers) Limited and the Seddon Group was created.
