50 Years and still going strong!

Robert Lickley Refractories Ltd are pleased to announce that in 2020 we are celebrating our 50th Anniversary, after having first started life as Robert Lickley Ltd in July 1970.

The Company was founded by Mr Robert Lickley, who had previously been Sales Director of Gibbons Refractories based in Dudley in the West Midlands. He decided to branch out with his own business, initially producing a small range of castable and precast products under the ARELCRETE brand name, with the emphasis being on producing high quality products and excellent customer service.

Unfortunately, Mr Lickley is no longer with us, but his spirit and legacy lives on and we are sure that he would have been so proud of the Company and its employees’ in achieving this landmark anniversary.

It goes without saying that he would wish us to express how sincerely grateful we are to all our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders, many of whom have been with us through good times and bad over the last 50 years. We would like to thank them for their support and contribution throughout this period, helping us to achieve this historic milestone in the Company’s history.

Over the last 5 decades, the Company has faced many challenging and difficult times, but always had the strength, determination and resilience to overcome them. Now in 2020, with the challenges presented by Covid 19 and Brexit, we will continue to adapt and move forward.

The original principles of Quality and Service on which the Company was founded are every bit as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. We remain as optimistic as ever that things will improve over the coming weeks and months ahead and
look forward to many more years of co-operation and partnership with everyone associated with Robert Lickley Refractories Ltd.
