Co Tyrone company Acheson and Glover operates form a number of sites throughout Northern Ireland.

It was founded in 1960 to provide limestone from a quarry in Fivemiletown. It has since grown into a leading manufacturer of paving and flags, retaining walls, masonry blocks, bricks (including a mortarless brick system), precast stairs, concrete, blocks and quarried stone.

It was one of the few Northern Ireland companies to win a contract for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Divisions of the company include Acheson & Glover Precast, Acheson & Glover (Ireland), and Regrow.
