Devon’s largest family-owned quarrying, concrete and road contracting business began extracting limestone from its Ashburton site in 1958. It has a second quarry in Bude, and five offices across Devon and Cornwall supplying industries such as agriculture and construction. Increased demand for asphalt and concrete helped profits rise to £4.6m in 2015. To run the business, the Glendinning family typically appoints non-family members, such as managing director Barry Wilson, 50.
