Charles “Charlie” Hudson founded the company Instarmac Repair Services Ltd in 1977. The new company, inspired by the term instant tarmac, moved to its first office location in Minworth, Staffordshire, and started with Tiny Draper’s (of Emcol Int.) pothole repair material.
Instarmac grew over the next 20 years and was able to increase its production capacity and develop innovative new brands. In addition to products for highway maintenance and streetscape, the new product brands now included tiling and flooring products. Instarmac soon needed more space to accommodate its growing business.
In 2008, Instarmac moved to its new multi-million-pound site in Dordon Tamworth. The new site is home to innovative manufacturing processes, export, finance, distribution, marketing, and sales.
Instarmac’s growth in research and development has paid off as it now serves 30 countries, has an expansive network of employees and fleets, and offers five brands of products for different needs.
