Newton Waterproofing Systems, originally named John Newton & Company Ltd, is celebrating 170 years of trading this year.

img 1Founded in Bermondsey in 1848 by John Newton himself, the company is officially the oldest UK supplier of waterproofing and damp proofing products. Newton was originally a supplier of plasterers hair and has come a long way since, now offering damp proof membrane, meshed membranes, cavity drainage systems for basements, and a nationwide network of approved and vetted specialist contractors, Newton has been at the heart of industry best practice throughout their 170-year tenure.

The company prides itself on being independent and family owned, which it credits much of its success to. Newton Chairman Christopher Newton, great-grandson of the original John Newton, who has been Chairman since the 1970s, still values the environment of the company as the cause for its enduring success: “I have always been proud to say that Newton is a family-run company, with a strong family ethos that provides the foundation for our 21st century company. Coupled with our independent status, this approach grants us complete impartiality and a valuable freedom of choice, therefore allowing us to grow and improve whilst consistently offering the highest levels of service and sourcing new and innovative solutions.”

In addition, Newton’s freedom to objectively source the best products for the industry without input from shareholders or manufacturers allows them to provide a complete range of waterproofing solutions for all projects and scenarios.

In 2017 the company became the first UK waterproofing company to develop a recycling service for waste cavity drain membrane, and also launched the innovative Newton Waterproofing Index, scoring waterproofing designs and making specification as simple as possible.
