Problem solving and innovation are at the core of everything we do – continually striving to be at the leading edge of material technology.

Problem solving

Jesmonite was invented here in the UK in 1984 by Peter Hawkins who remains at the heart of the company as Technical and Development Director. The original compound was an acrylic-modified gypsum composite which is still sold to this day. It was conceived as a safe alternative to fibreglass (GRP) and as a lightweight alternative to cast concrete.

Our continued commitment to invention and problem solving has resulted in a range that now extends to a family of materials covering a myriad of applications.


We constantly seek to innovate and lead through a deep understanding of a broad range of material solutions. This results in materials that address real questions such as safety, aesthetic quality and provides practical solutions where existing technologies are flawed.

Working in collaboration with our customers to answer specific briefs we design and formulate materials in our factory, then our extensive experience informs each development so that the resulting material meets or exceeds expectations.
