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.
These progressive moves represent the steady, sustainable growth that Ridgeway have shown for over 40 years ensuring that the best facilities, location and service are available for their customers.
Like in any owner managed business, the team are the core assets of the machine. Ridgeway have invested heavily in the right people and have a proud record of dedicated staff, suppliers and loyal customers.
The focus on good down to earth service with a personal touch to ensure complete satisfaction and repeat business is our core competency and value at Ridgeway.
With a relatively young and yet very experienced management team the business is in good hands as we continue to invest in technology and systems to offer better service, communicate information and respond faster to clients needs.
