Naylor Industries plc is a family owned fourth generation business. The Company's head office is in Barnsley, UK; it has 6 manufacturing sites across the UK: 3 in Yorkshire and one each in the West Midlands, Fife and Cheshire. The Company's origins lie in clay pipes - a product which it has manufactured for over 100 years. From this traditional base, Naylor's activities have expanded and diversified resulting in a group of substance, with interests across a broad spectrum of the building and construction industries. The Naylor group today employs some 400 people and sells a wide range of drainage and concrete products as far afield as South East Asia and Australasia.

Naylor Industries is Celebrating its 125th Year
Yorkshire based Naylor Industries is celebrating its 125th year.
The company, a fourth generation family business, was founded as a clay pipe manufacturer by George Wilfred Naylor in 1890.
Initially, manufacturing operations centred on the West Yorkshire village of Denby Dale, some 4 miles from Naylor’s present day head office at Cawthorne, near Barnsley. Recent decades have seen the company expand into new markets and in addition to 3 factories in South Yorkshire, Naylor now has plants in Fife, Cheshire and the West Midlands manufacturing a range of clay, plastic and concrete products.
Whilst the company primarily supplies the construction industry, Naylor’s Yorkshire Flowerpots business is now the UK’s largest manufacturer of terracotta garden pots. Business turnover now exceeds £50m and the company employs some 400 people.
