About Us


Tarways is one of the UK’s longest established tarmac and asphalt contractors. With a history and reputation since 1973, we are recognised nationally as one of the country’s best quality contractors.

Growing from a small family business to a contractor with offices in the North, Midlands and South, we work across a variety of sectors, from schools and education, retail, hospital, industrial and office to car dealerships, sports stadia, transport, local authority and residential. And – in spite of that growth – we are a modern, flexible and reliable business with a reputation for excellent service, dedicated to providing our customers with the experience and expertise to deliver your job on time and on budget.

From support on design and specification to our specialisms in coloured tarmac, porous tarmac, resin-bound finishes and RAP (recycled aggregate product) surfaces, we’ve made a reputation from building long-lasting relationships with our customers, contractors and suppliers.



Today: the Tarways family now includes circa 10 teams and will continue to grow over the coming years.


In spite of the recession, the business continues to grow, doubling its workforce and working nationwide.
