SureSet’s company originators Peter Watts, Kevin Weston and Michael Newton come from a quarry background and throughout their careers, have experimented heavily with clear resins and aggregates.
They had spent years trying to overcome the various technical difficulties associated with manufacturing hot laid clear bindered macadams and, over time, they developed a better way of achieving a range of high quality, consistent and durable products for a market that existed (the European market had already tried) but had yet, in their opinion, to prove its worth. Using their knowledge of asphalt surfacing and aggregates, the originators created the technology, products and investment to set up SureSet.
“I knew that there was a market for a cheap resin/oil bound material with limited durability, because it already existed and the only way to be certain that there was a demand for a better quality product, was to set up in business and find out! The real shock for me, was finding out just how hard it was to actually find customers, so many people seem content to make do with buying on price, rather than value for money!” Peter Watts – Chairman
