Here at J.C. Phillips & Son Ltd, we are proud to have been established since 1901. Established by Josiah Charles Phillips, we have been supplying sands, gravels and general haulage to Bridport and the local community for many years. The business has grown and we now supply bird grits, aquarium gravel and water filtration gravels. In 1986 we, Rachael and David Weston bought the business and we have continued to grow our product range and build upon our level of expertise. We now stock and supply building aggregates, concrete blocks, stones, gravels, topsoil, Caledonian cobbles and boulders and are sole local stockists of decorative garden paving from well known brands such as Bradstone & Brett. We also stock and supply Rugby Premium Cement, Rugby White Cement, Rugby Lime Hydrated Cement and Rugby Post Mix Cement.
With over 100 years combined experience in the business, you can be reassured you will receive honest, practical and knowledgeable advice from any of our friendly staff.
We have a large yard and invite both the trade and public, so whether you are a developer, builder or simply doing some DIY, we welcome you to come along and look and touch the sands, gravels, blocks, paving and aggregates before buying. We will gladly give samples of gravel, sand and stone cobbles and boulders for customers to take home to decide which best suits their home and garden. We we will also loan paving slabs to help you decide which best suits your needs.
You can either collect your goods from our yard and use our public weighbridge, or use our delivery service which is FREE of charge locally and we can deliver any quantities large or small. We can deliver to large sites and also areas with tight or restricted access, and having a crane lorry makes challenging deliveries possible.
We supply in either 25kg or 1 tonne bags, we are however the only supplier of 1 tonne (half tonne also available) dumpy bags of sand and gravels in the area ensuring you get true value for money.
As the business has grown we have seen the need to cover a larger area and we are now regularly delivering to Bridport, West Bay, Weymouth, Dorchester, Portland, Beaminster, Chideock, Lyme Regis, Axminster, and surrounding villages in West Dorset.
We pride ourselves on being an independent family run business, very much hands on and always try to be flexible to our customers' needs should they have an urgent or unusual order. When you call our offices you will be greeted by either Rachael (one of the bosses) or Sarah (the boss’s daughter) who will assist with expert advice and are also able to offer a free calculation service, helping you figure out how much sand, gravel, aggregate or paving you need.
