Jesmonite was invented here in the UK in 1984 by Peter Hawkins who remains at the heart of the company as Technical and Development Director. The original compound was an acrylic-modified gypsum composite which is still sold to this day. It was conceived as a safe alternative to fibreglass (GRP) and as a lightweight alternative to cast concrete.
We constantly seek to innovate and lead through a deep understanding of a broad range of material solutions. This results in materials that address real questions such as safety, aesthetic quality and provides practical solutions where existing technologies are flawed.
