Family owned manufacturing business -trading since 1740
Procter Bros are a Made in Yorkshire Silver Member
Procter Cast Stone is part of Procter Bros Ltd., a family owned business established in 1740. We put great emphasis on both high product quality and outstanding customer service.
Procter is one of the UK’s leading cast stone specialists and offers a comprehensive service to design, manufacture, supply and install high quality bespoke artificial stone products throughout the UK, as well as supplying a range of standard products from stock.
Our cast stone products are made from a semi-dry format that is cost-effective and gives consistent quality and colour, and is therefore ideal for a very wide range of property types including residential, retail, religious, self-build, ornamental and restoration applications.
The quality of our cast stone product is excellent and this is a result of many years’ experience, a skilled and dedicated workforce in place, combined with rigorous quality control measures throughout the manufacturing process.
In addition, Procter Cast Stone is a member of United Kingdom Cast Stone Association (UKCSA) which requires high manufacturing quality standards from its members.
Once the full requirements are agreed and the quotation approved, we start the manufacturing process. Manufacture is carried out at our factory in Garforth, West Yorkshire and under closely controlled conditions to ensure consistent high quality standards of production and curing.
Once the design is agreed, the next stage involves our highly skilled craftsman producing timber moulds. These moulds are created to engineering dimensions, and the skill and care that goes into them is reflected in the final superb finished cast stone feature. Once a mould is complete, checked and ready for use, the manufacturing process for the cast stone feature commences. This process is carefully controlled and monitored to ensure the colour is correct and consistent, and the finish of the item superb.
At Procter Cast Stone we offer our customer the option to use our expert installation service rather than just have the cast stone product delivered to site.
For relatively simple cast stone features - so perhaps a cill or head - it’s generally the case that a building contractor will have all the necessary skills to install them properly. However, for more complex features - e.g. a portico or balustrade - our customers often prefer to use our expert installation service.
In addition to our comprehensive range of standard products, we very much specialise in the manufacture of individually designed cast stone features to meet specific project requirements.
Our design service is especially useful to people embarking on self-building projects, as they are able to show us the sort of features they are after - and perhaps using our image library and case studies for reference - then get us to do the rest. And for hard-pressed architects, the facility to just forward us a rough sketch of what they are after saves them time, hassle and money.
