Company History

Civils & Lintels was formed in 2006 by the amalgamation of Cooper Clarke, A R Hendricks, Willis Builders Merchants, Dunpark & Warrington Slate, and has expanded since then to include additional sites at Cramlington, Corby, Exeter, Staffordshire and in mid-2012 at Hayes under the Hendricks Lovell brand. The branch Network was further enhanced by the acquisition of 2 former Burdens branches in Olney and Fareham in December 2012.

In June of 2013 Civils & Lintels relocated the Cramlington branch to a 2-acre site in South Shields.

Customers can rely on the in-depth knowledge of the depot teams to offer technical advice, comprehensive tendering, rapid material sourcing and competitive rates. The company forms partnerships with its customers to offer cost-saving solutions and exceptional service.
