Martello Piling was established in 2002, by the then directors John Hollingsworth, James Blackwell and Jim Unsworth to offer a revolutionary new piling system which enables the construction of large diameter piling in restricted access and low headroom conditions. 

 

Martello has over 15 years of experience in the UK piling and foundation industry and is committed to the development of creative solutions and innovative new techniques. Martello design and build their own piling rigs and therefore have the ability to tailor any equipment to meet the needs of specific projects. 

 

In 2017, Martello Piling was acquired by Franki Foundations UK, this acquisition has opened up new opportunities for us both in the UK and overseas by strengthening our expertise.
