Radbournes is a local Hereford company and has been established for over 35 years. Originally founded by Dave Radbourne who started by delivering materials direct from the quarries. He opened the yard at Rotherwas over 25 years ago with one truck and a small digger. It has now grown into one of the largest merchants in the Midlands.
From its start as a company specialising in the delivery of small loose loads of sand and gravel it has grown year on year, expanding into the supply of large loose bulk loads to both domestic and trade. Bulk bagged and pre-packed aggregates are also supplied and delivered via a large fleet of modern crane lorries.
A bagging division to supply builder’s merchants with their requirements of both bulk and pre-packed aggregates was established in the late 1980s with a small bagging plant. These have been replaced and updated over the years and now Radbournes has a high output bulk bagging plant and a robotic pre-packed aggregates bagging line that are based at Rotherwas.
A stone cropper was also purchased in the 1980s and now Radbournes has both cropping and stone tumbling facilities at its yard alongside a range of over 20 types of walling and building stone.
Concrete has also become a major part of the business. Radbournes specialise in the mini mix market introducing it in the 1990s, and this has now been complemented with the supply of concrete pump hire with large and small boom pumps available.
In the late 1990s flagstones and paving were introduced and Radbournes now have a huge range of both imported and UK produced stones in a dedicated display area. Also in the 1990s, Radbournes became a Melcourt Master Stockist of bark and wood products with a range of materials stocked, and access to the complete Melcourt range of products. Alongside this a range of topsoils are now manufactured and sold in various grades and types.

“The gravel has been delivered thank you. Just wanted to say how helpful your driver was too, it is tight coming along the lane but he didn’t mind and went the extra mile to get the gravel far enough into my field so me could get past it. He was really helpful. Thank you very much.”
