Company History
 
Buchan Concrete Solutions enjoys a history and track record spanning more than 60 years.

CV Buchan, as it was then known, was established as a tunnelling contractor in the 1930s. Since then, the business has undergone a number of major changes but, the quality and dependability of its product and service remain the same.

In 1969 Buchan was acquired by the construction company Fairclough and the two manufacturing operations were brought together under the Buchan name to produce pre-cast concrete exclusively.

Over the next 20 years, Buchan gained a reputation as a premier manufacturer of pre-cast concrete for the civil engineering market.

By the 1990s it had secured contracts in Egypt, Denmark and America as well as in the UK. Around this time Buchan also began to explore the design facet of the business, developing individual solutions for specific customer requirements.

Over the next few years national initiatives to modularise construction and take work off site were introduced and a new demand for pre-cast concrete developed within the building industry. Traditionally, 100% of Buchan's work was within civil engineering, but as these new demands emerged, Buchan responded by targeting building construction. Today, over 80% of Buchan's business is in this sector.

In March 2007, Amec plc sold Buchan to the Roger Bullivant Group of companies a name synonymous with innovation and development.

In September 2011, Buchan changed hands again in a buy out by Chargill Group of Companies Ltd. Since the takeover, Buchan has streamlined its operations and is now looking towards the future, to developing new systems, new products and new solutions and continuing to supply the best possible service, to the highest standards, at the most competitive prices.

Over the last 60 years Buchan has developed as one of the largest pre-cast concrete solution providers in the UK. The company can list all the major UK contractors among its clients and has a reputation for a cost-effective, dependable service.

Today, Buchan is known as a specialist in the design, manufacture and installation of its unique range of building solutions and underground products, factory engineered to fulfil client expectations, time and again.
