    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.
