Originally based in Ramsgate, Kent, Hi-Way Services became an incorporated company in 1990. Operating 5 screed crews, 1 paint crew and 1 machine crew, Hi-Way Service worked closely with local authorities, together with a broad range of private clients, including major supermarket chains. We also worked alongside much larger contractors, observing their practices, and aspiring to become like them.
In 2004 we purchased a road marking and cats eye milling company in West Sussex. We have since combined this company into Hi-Way Services (October 2006) and now operate 3 screed crews together with 2 cats eye milling crews from this depot. We also have a depot in Thurrock, Essex.
By the middle of 2005, the major expansion of client base and increase in man-power and equipment meant relocation was necessary. In the summer of 2006 we moved premises to Lakesview International Business Park, Hersden. We now operate 6 screed crews, 2 machine crews, an anti-skid crew and a paint crew. We have become the largest road marking contractor in the South East of England and carry out work not only all over the UK but also worldwide – including work in Kenya!
Not only has the on-the-road work force significantly increased, we also have a team of surveyors who undertake to visit sites within 48-hours of enquiry, meaning the timescale between initial contact and job scheduling is second to none.
In October 2008 we launched our online store, meaning that our ever expanding company not only provides an outstanding road marking service but also can supply equipment and products such as paint, studs, etc. to our clients at very competitive prices.
