Clients and experience

  • Why work with us?

    We have been recognised for our approach to quality, environmental, and health and safety management, as evidenced by our UKAS accredited, BSI audited ISO9001, 14001 and 18001 certifications.

    We also proudly hold CHAS, SafeContractor, Contractor Plus, Achilles, Construction Line, Altius and Safe Mark accreditations, giving you peace of mind that The Gritting Company cares about on-site performance and the highest standards across the board. We are also founder members of RHA & CPA.

    We believe we are the UK’s only winter maintenance specialist that can truthfully say we have never run out of salt. With strong supplier relationships, the ability to haul our own salt, and stockyards with 20,000 tonnes of BS 3247 salt in reserve, we will always have spare capacity.

    Our in-house weather experts are trained to Met Office gold quality mark standard, enabling them to accurately interpret the most trusted, reliable and current Met Office forecast data supplied in the UK, throughout the day.

    We combine our proven monitoring expertise with unrivalled knowledge of localised climates and geographical variances, to ensure our gritting teams hit the road exactly when the time is right.

    Because we have the most comprehensive fleet of gritting vehicles, salt spreaders and snow clearance equipment in the country, of course we want to protect them. But this isn’t the main reason for our long-standing investment in GPRS tracking.

    The system allows us to document and evidence every single site we visit, providing us with a comprehensive audit trail of all our activity for the last five years. The live tracking information also feeds into our advanced job management system, enabling us to provide an unbroken, nationwide service with utmost client transparency.

    We have never believed in a one size fits all approach. That’s why we’re the chosen gritting and snow clearance specialist for private clients, large and small, throughout the whole of the UK.

    From local GP surgeries to national retail parks and leading supermarkets, there are no sites we cannot support, and our high quality services are always provided at the most competitive price possible.


  • Clients & Experience

    Many gritting service providers in the UK will only commit to supporting clients with sites of a certain size, or budget. That’s not the case at The Gritting Company.

    We are dedicated to ensuring ‘business as usual’ for customers throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, regardless of their location, site requirements or turnover. In fact we have the UK’s most extensive range of winter maintenance vehicles – from large lorry-mounted gritting trucks, to smaller push along salt spreaders for more restrictive sites – to ensure we’re always equipped to help.

    This on-site flexibility – plus our ability to deliver tailored packages to suit different needs and budgets – sees us supporting clients on a truly nationwide basis. We have a client in the Outer Hebrides for instance, but we also look after customers in Yeovil, Weymouth and Plymouth – and virtually everywhere in between!

    Our clients vary from small GP and dentist surgeries, to nurseries, schools, colleges, universities, factories, manufacturing plants, retail parks and one of the UK’s largest supermarket chains. It doesn’t matter if you’re a small independent brand, or a global entity; a single-site operation or a multi-location business; the end client or a facilities management intermediary. We can help, by providing you all with the same peace of mind, thanks to the same proactive service.

    Why not contact us to discuss how we could satisfy your specific winter maintenance requirements? And don’t just take our word for it – we can also put you in contact with some of our existing customers, so you can ask them what they think of the service we’ve provided.
