Established in 1960, Acheson & Glover is a leading manufacturer of paving and flags, masonry blocks, retaining walls, bricks (including a mortarless brick system), hollowcore flooring, precast stairs, concrete, blocks and quarried stone. The Co Tyrone company operates from a number of sites throughout Northern Ireland.

In 2009 it was one of the few local companies to win a contract for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The £250,000 contract for the 80,000 seater Olympic Stadium saw the firm supply 500mm deep hollow core concrete slabs to the main contractor for use in the podium deck surrounding the venue and 12 special concrete lift caps.

The firm also won Environmental Project of the Year at the latest Quarry Products Association NI awards for its environmentally friendly concrete waste recycling process.
