About Shire Aggregates

Shire Aggregates was formed in 1992 specialising at the time in supplying pre-packed aggregates to the local builders’ merchants. From small beginnings supplying a couple of depots, the business gained a reputation for reliable, personal service and quality products and has grown to supply major merchants, we now have a large portfolio of trade customers and the we also supply directly to the general public for DIY projects.

In 2003 the company moved into the supply of bulk aggregates, supplying direct to site for builders merchants and small builders. Over the years we have steadily increased our capacity and our fleet of trucks, and we now supply to all sizes of customer from home owners and small builders requiring quantities over 5 tonnes to to national major civil engineering companies, groundworks, developers and large construction companies. 




We deliver our building aggregates across a large area from Northumberland down to Chesterfield (see our coverage map).

Our available tipper fleet consists of:

  • Up to 15 eight wheeled tippers of 20 tonnes capacity
  • 1 six wheeled tipper of 16 tonnes capacity
  • 1 four wheeled vehicles of 10 tonnes capacity
  • 4 articulated vehicles of 30 tonnes capacity


Please be aware that we use a 16 tonne truck for our smaller deliveries. This is a large truck and although smaller loads are not an issue for us you need to bear in mind the access to your property and whether it is possible to get a vehicle of that size close to your drop off point.


Serious about Sustainability

We take our recycling responsibilities seriously and we are always looking to find ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint, reducing waste and being more efficient and eco-friendly. We understand ‘Breeam’ requirements and we wherever possible would source the appropriate material for a project with sustainability in mind. More recently we have become FORS accredited. FORS is a voluntary scheme for Fleet operators and being FORS accredited confirms that as a company we employ good practices and are committed to operating a safer, more efficient business.
