Tom Whittaker - Managing Director Finch Aggregates

Tom Whittaker - Managing Director

We are a family owned business based at Blackburn, Lancashire.

In 1978 I began my quarrying career with Tarmac, in their technical department, at Bankfield Quarry, Clitheroe. Dealing with all aspects of quality control and technical issues relating to a large quarrying operation. In 1985 I moved into sales where I spent the next 5 years involved in the sale of drystone and coated materials throughout the north of England. 

 

In 1990 I joined Marshall PLC, to develop sales from their Gritstone Quarries in Lancashire. I was promoted to Commercial Manager and General Manager and was involved with all aspects of their North West, North Wales, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire, sand, gravel and quarrying operations.

In 2004, we decided to work for ourselves and purchased William Finch (Building Materials) Limited, a local sand and aggregates supplier. The Company name was changed to "Finch Aggregates" in 2012.

"We have steadily invested in key areas of the operation
and have seen the business grow year on year"
