South West Concrete Repairs was established in January 1995 by Kevin Buckley to provide specialist services to the Construction Industry and Public authorities in the Plymouth area and surrounding Counties. Following the transfer to a limited company in 1997 the company was able to extend both its scope of services and areas of operation, and is now covering the Midlands, Wales and the South of England as well as the whole of the South West.
Correct diagnosis of the causes of deterioration and failure are essential in deciding the best and most cost effective method of repair and future protection. In order to improve on our services, we have formed sound working relationships with several structural engineers and testing laboratories so now we can provide a complete bespoke survey, testing and report service to meet our client’s requirements.
The company prides itself on its workmanship and quality. As qualified and experienced concrete repair specialists, operatives are personally selected for their own experience and qualifications within this field. We have developed ongoing training in product and application techniques, along with specific site training such CSCS, ECITB, SPA licence and work in Radiologically Controlled Areas, and Health & Safety training (Confined Space, Abrasive Wheels etc).

Our customer needs and requirements are paramount, and in order to ensure we not just meet those needs and requirements but exceed our customers expectations we have now introduced a full quality management System (accredited to ISO9001) and a full Environmental management System (accredited to ISO 14001).
