Our History

Founded in 1948 by William (Bill) and Margaret (Madge) Thompson as a simple husband and wife partnership, the business began by hauling agricultural lime, manure, hay, straw and slag (a beneficial fertiliser by-product from steelworks).


Flat-bedded trucks were first used for hauling, with all loading and unloading being done by hand with shovels. In 1947, the first truck cost £494 17s 4d, whereby contrast a modern Thompson’s truck costs in excess of £120,000.

Our Locations

Thompsons operate from a purpose built facility in Low Prudhoe, Northumberland and also operate several quarries across the North East.
