Our History

Having been established over 25 years, Sheet Piling (UK) Ltd have built a strong reputation for developing innovative Value Engineering Solutions for both temporary and permanent sheet piling projects.

The Company was initially founded by John Hull in 1994 and traded a part of Speedy Group companies. In 1999 the company was purchased from the Speedy Group by the then Directors and has traded as an independent company ever since.

Today, whilst John Hull remains as Chairman, the company is run on a day-to-day basis by the current Directors being Andrew Cotton (Managing Director), Andy Foy (Construction Director), Jonathan Mitchell (Commercial Director) and Imran Patel (Finance Director).
