About Us

Plasterite was started in 1976 by Allen Paterson. We remain a family run business, with Allen’s three sons now managing the day to day activities, all of whom have trained with the company. Together, the four family members share close to 100 years of experience in the fibrous plastering industry. We are complimented by a further wealth of knowledge from our employees, some of whom did their apprenticeship with the company and have stayed with us ever since.

Over the years we have dealt with many interesting building restoration and property development projects and have built up a network of clients that still use the company today, some after having work carried out in the early days when the company first began!
