Smiths Bletchington is a well-established local, independent, family-owned business, serving the construction, civil engineering, landscaping and allied industries in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties. Smiths provide a wide range of primary and recycled aggregates to a diverse customer base, from national contractors to small domestic deliveries.

The company is proud of its links to the local community and indeed the local economy. This is achieved by various community support projects, it’s customers, suppliers and of course it’s employees.

The relationship and support of Oxford United is also seen as a significant part of consolidating these local community links, mirroring the Football Clubs ‘work in the community’ ethos.
