Originally founded as Isaac Timmins Ltd in 1929, the Myers Group can trace its modern day heritage back to 1959 when Readymix Huddersfield was incorporated. The Readymix operation has since expanded into a regional business with four strategically located manufacturing plants.
Group companies also include Johnsons Wellfield, founded in 1854 and acquired by the Myers family in 1979. Johnsons Wellfield is Britain’s leading supplier of natural hard Yorkstone and the only division of the Group trading on a national basis.
Myers Building Supplies is a generalist builders merchant with fourteen branches serving the everyday needs of local building professionals throughout Yorkshire, and is the largest trading division within the organisation.
Completing the Group are two Huddersfield focused specialist businesses – Myers Timber and Myers Skip Hire.
