Moving With The Times
In 1969 Ridgeway Plant Company Ltd acquired its name from their first location at Ridgeway Street, beside the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.
In 1972 the company transferred to Diamond Gardens in Finaghy, then in 1987 on to a prime purpose built site in Boucher Road, which at that time was the centre hub for transport links to all areas of the province.
During this time the company also created depot locations in Chelmsford, UK and Dublin, Ireland. Improvements in the local transport infrastructure and a new developing Belfast offered Ridgeway the chance to relocate to superb ‘drive through’ style premises on Airport Road West in 2004.
In 2016 Ridgeway opened a new depot in Ashbourne, County Meath, further strengthening the supply chain to the construction, engineering and manufacturing industries throughout Ireland. Complete with a call-in trade counter and experienced staff, the new depot offers the same services and product ranges as our Belfast operation and provides a centrally-located hub for fast Ireland-wide delivery.
In 2017 the company’s reach expanded again with the development and growth of the Rockbags side of the business enabling delivery of service and innovative products to quay sides across UK and Europe.
These progressive moves represent the steady, sustainable growth that Ridgeway have shown for over 40 years ensuring that the best facilities, location and on site services are available for their customers.
