Company history


From 1927 and during the 1930’s, the Cullimore Group bulked up local clientele in the Stroud and Gloucester area and of particular note, a business relationship with T.Butt & Son Ltd that existed until recently.

The War Years were spent carrying parts for the Air Ministry, with half of the Cullimore fleet working on aerodrome construction in Devon and North Cornwall. In fact before the War they had been running to RAF locations including Hullavington, Boscombe Down and the Moreton Valence aerodrome works at Gloucester.

After the war, some 260,000 tonnes of gravel from Frampton was delivered to the Brabizon runway at Filton, Bristol. Other projects followed later on various sections of the M4, M50 and M5 motorways. Cullimore Group also supplied and delivered aggregates for the iconic Eagle Star building in Cheltenham, with the haulage side of the business transported materials for British Steel in South Wales from 1963 until 2002.

Today, Cullimore Group employs close to 100 staff and drivers. Their knowledge and understanding of their customer base, based upon knowledge acquired and continually honed over nearly 100 years, is second to none.

Family-based companies traditionally engender both enthusiasm and loyalty among their staff. Cullimore Group is no exception to this rule. Successive generations of families have elected to join the Cullimore workforce throughout the years, maintaining traditions and building new ones for the future.


Expansion in recent years includes an increased presence in the idyllic Cotswold Water Park and the ever-growing capabilities at our Netherhills head office site, which includes the unveiling of our approved MOT test lane in 2011 and the doubling of our repair shop capacity to accommodate up to four HGVs per hour.

Whilst we are striving to moving forward with the times, the family ethos that Cullimore Group was founded upon by my grandfather remains at our core. Our sector, and those of our customers, have also evolved, but we are excited about the opportunities these will bring forward.
