About Us

Vulcan Group began in 1979 as a stockist, distributor and installer of industrial rubber products....

...The business grew consistently as the product portfolio increased to include a range of rubber products including rubber matting and rubber sheeting. In 2002, a dedicated recycled rubber manufacturing unit was opened to supply high quality shredded and granulated rubber crumb for equestrian surfaces and other technical markets.

In 2010, the business relocated to a brand new, purpose built operating centre in North Yorkshire. The 1-acre site houses a new 15,000 ft2 warehouse as well as the rubber manufacturing facility. Since then, we have organised our business into clearly defined segments, each focusing on specific product areas and all underpinned by the common Vulcan brand. Its specialist brands are the result of the experience, interests, and market research by Vulcan's Directors and associates.

The Group is proud to still be a privately owned family organisation and is committed to its responsibilities to its employees, its customers and suppliers. The group is focussed on producing results for the benefit of both customers and end-users. It is this customer focus, we believe, is a precondition for sustainable growth.

We are proud of the way we operate. It's driven the successful development of our company from the day it was founded. As we've grown, our approach to business has become a solid platform. Vulcan Group aims to continue to develop its people and assets to protect the future of its employees, shareholders and business partners.

"At Vulcan, we have a 'yes' attitude and open and resourceful staff. Feeling good about the future is an understatement! We've got something to shout about. I call it the Massey Fergusson factor - well built, strong transmission, whatever the field."

Simon Cave, Managing Director
