The Stratec Difference

We’ve been trusted by the civil engineering, environmental engineering and construction industries for nearly 50 years.

Stratec Ltd was originally founded in 1976 by the Watkins family, supplying projects in North West England with Geosynthetic material, and is proudly headed up by a Watkins family member to this day.

The company separated from being part of the Swiftec Group in 2021 and is now led by Gordon Watkins, who has been involved in the company since 1987.

Our mission is simple: Helping commercial and domestic people ‘Make ground good’ with a range of credible and quality branded range of products that are easily accessible UK-wide.

Our renowned consult, assess, and deliver process means we don’t just supply geotechnical products but deploy the in-house know-how to examine and resolve ground quality issues from site survey to on-site delivery.
