Founded in 1999, Poundfield has nurtured a reputation for developing unique and effective concrete products. Part of the construction materials group SigmaRoc, our core business principles are to manufacture quality concrete solutions and to provide a complimentary support service from design through to customer aftercare.
Working closely with our clients, we have established three key areas of specialism: Retaining walls, beam & block flooring and bespoke precast concrete.
Following the initial launch of the Alfabloc®, our unique ‘A’ shaped retaining wall system, our wall department has grown to incorporate six core retaining wall products. Today, these units are used to provide precast solutions to the agricultural, waste & recycling, security and utilities industries.
Breaking into the residential and commercial property markets, we have grown to become the premium choice supplier in the beam & block market. Beam & block flooring offers a number of advantages over traditional timber flooring and is becoming a popular construction method. We provide a comprehensive flooring quotation package, flexible cutting schedules and ongoing support.
These client-focused values are reflected in our bespoke precast department. Experts in providing precast concrete solutions across a number of industries, our bespoke products are used in projects as diverse as large multi-storey car parks, railways and essential sea defences.
With the facilities to produce multiple components as well as bespoke one-off pieces, and with links to local and national construction firms who can install your precast units on your behalf, we truly do provide a comprehensive service from design to finish.
Now, as part of Sigma PPG, we can take advantage of the synergies offered as part of a larger construction materials group to create solutions to all your precast concrete needs.
Poundfield Precast: Precast concrete to be proud of.
Company founded and Alfabloc® product launched.1999
Prestressed panels introduced. The combination of the Alfabloc® and prestressed panels provided a wider offering for grain and bulk storage for the agricultural market.2002
L-bloc® product launch. The only prestressed interlocking 1 metre wide ‘L-shape’ retaining wall on the market. This product is lightweight and interlocking, making it more robust and easier to install than standard precast ‘L-shaped’ blocks.2003
2 metre wide L-bloc® added to range. These have all the advantages of the original product but having the extra width means installation time is halved and it is very competitive in terms of price.
As the applications of the company's concrete products increased so too did the markets for which the products appealed. The company experienced rapid growth in recycling & waste management, construction and ports & shipping.2005
Launch of Betaloc® XL - the highly flexible, interlocking concrete retaining block The blocks lock together by the protruding concrete pyramid on the top side which matches an indent on the bottom.2008
A new offer of bespoke concrete products made to customer specification was launched with great success. Initially focused of precast concrete slabs used in the construction of car parks, we now have a wide breadth of experience in providing precast concrete solutions across a number of industries.2009
With the increased use of precast concrete in construction, and the evolution of modern methods of construction, the concrete boundaries were stretched further with the Shuttabloc™. This product is quick to install but provides the same properties as a wall that has been cast in situ.2009
Block & beam flooring department was established offering a made-to-measure service, along with on-site design service, for the residential and commercial property markets. A great many of our products are now supplied to builders merchants across the UK, as well as direct to end user customers.2010
Taperbloc™ was introduced as a lighter alternative to the Alfabloc® (and this has now been replaced by the Taperbloc™ XL which has a slightly different design for easy manoeuvrability with a forklift)2013
