Trusted brand, trusted partner

The Maldon Salt Company was established in 1882 and has provided the world with high quality, gourmet salt flakes, made with the same traditional artisan methods, for four generations (see picture below). In 2012, two years after a visit by HM The Queen, the company was granted a Royal Warrant. A.W. Hardy has been the firm’s trusted construction partner on three occasions since then, undertaking work in 2012, 2015 and 2021 to expand offices, warehouse and production facilities.

A.W. Hardy and the Maldon Salt Company share many characteristics. Both have been family-run companies for many decades, while each is dedicated to high quality that is based on tradition and excellent customer care. We are delighted to have been a crucial part of the Maldon Salt Company journey and we look forward to continuing this relationship.

Sensitivity to the environment

Each project has involved an extensive range of construction phases, including reworking of the landscape to accommodate new buildings and parking areas.

The latest phase was particularly challenging and innovative. Black Essex weather boarding allows the new plant to blend seamlessly and aesthetically into its surroundings. A steel frame with brick and block work is enveloped by a weather-board finish. The materials used are designed to robustly accommodate the salt extraction process.

This project was an excellent opportunity for A. W. Hardy to demonstrate its professionalism and project management abilities.
