Minster Surfacing

Proud to be based in Lincolnshire

In 2016 we moved into our new 3-acre headquarters in Lincoln. Designed and built by local firm Stirlin Developments, the new, bigger site has allowed us to grow our team to 40 full-time employees and subcontractors. We can now also recycle more waste road material than ever – over 20,000 tonnes in just six months.
