Clearway Gritting celebrates 15 years of winter gritting maintenance

Friday 12 October, 2018

As we approach the start of the new winter gritting season Clearway Gritting, based in St Albans is celebrating its fifteenth season of providing winter gritting services to a range of clients across the south east of England. 

Clearway Gritting now has the largest centralised winter gritting and snow clearing fleet in the south east.

Our 40 spreaders and 80+ snow ploughs are located in seven depots across the south east of England, so we are close to all our customers if they require us to clear heavy snow and grit their premises.  All bar one of our depots are located outside the M25 because it is this area of the south east that is generally colder and gets worse weather during the winter months. 

Andrew Sherriff - Director, Clearway Gritting, St Albans, Hertfordshire, said:

‘Clearway Gritting is a family owned winter gritting maintenance company.  We started offering winter gritting services when we were called out by a company in St Albans who was looking for a gritting contractor to help with snow clearance.   We started out offering winter gritting services in Hertfordshire.  As more companies became interested in our services we gradually opened a further six depots across London and the South East and we now also service clients in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.'   

Peter Boniface – Operations Manager, Clearway Gritting, St Albans, Hertfordshire, continued:

‘Over the past seventeen years we have built up a large client base and we specialise in hospital gritting, retail park gritting and general winter gritting for private companies to ensure their pavements and footpaths, carparks and private roads are gritted for their colleagues and customers.  We have seen many competitors enter the winter maintenance industry after bad winters when the demand for winter gritting increases.  However, some of these competitors are forced to close when we experience milder winters as they often can’t get enough contracts to keep them going, when there is no bad weather.  We are fortunate to have established many long-term contracts with a variety of clients across the south east so we will remain open even if we have mild winters.  If you are considering how your business will manage in the next winter gritting season and want to employ a reliable gritting contractor, please contact us to get a quote for our winter gritting services.  Don’t leave it too late to organise a gritting contract as we have already seen four frosts so far on the run up to this coming season.  Clearway Gritting can offer you footpath gritting, car park gritting and roadway gritting.  We also grit private estate roads.  To find out more call us now on 01727 851837.’
