As a company we pride ourselves on our impressive reputation within the construction industry.

Benjamin Armitage (Hyde) Ltd was founded in 1874. Today we are a thriving construction business with Daniel Armitage the 5th generation member of the family to take the helm.

Times have certainly changed in the 140 years that have elapsed since our company's inception, yet the traditional values the company was originally built on remain constant. We can boast a directly employed, highly skilled workforce and a reputation that can be verified by our testimonials and our standing over the years as a 'quality contractor'.

Our philosophy is simple - we are small enough to care and take real pride in each and every project, yet, we are still agile enough to take on building and refurbishment projects ranging in values between £200,000 and £4 million.

Today we are known simply under our trading name Armitage Construction. Companies House registration number: 512794

Benjamin Armitage (Hyde) Ltd was founded in 1874 in Hyde, Cheshire, although our roots in the construction industry can be traced back to 1774 to Joseph Armitage, a traditional carpenter
