About us

Who we are

The family run business is led by Lindy Willis who has over 30 years of experience having started in the aggregate industry in 1983. At the beginning of 2009, Willis Aggregates took over C. Ainsworth and Son. Ainsworth's had been opperating for over 40 years at this point. The two businesses combined to become Willis Aggregates Inc. Ainsworth. In 2012 we rebranded to become Willis & Ainsworth Ltd.

Competitive and efficient

The company has worked har to establish a reputation that is a: efficient, friendly and competitive service. We pride ourselves on being able to offer any size load you want on any vehicle you would like. We specialise in tight acces jobs with 3 different vehicle sizes in our own fleet. Over the yers we have established a network of local hauliers to help with all kinds of logisitcal needs.

Having always operated in the Thames Valley / Berkshire area we have a vast knowledge of all local sands and gravels and their varying colours. We are always happy to try to help you find the most complimentary product available if you are trying to match existing material. We are also able to help and advise on decorative and ornamental gravels, which are not local and source gravels from Scotland to Cornwall to meet your specific needs.

"From a teaspoon full, to a 10 tonne tipper full."
