Marley celebrates 100 years

Pitched roof systems manufacturer Marley is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this week.

Founded in 1924 by Owen Aisher, the company’s very first concrete roof tiles began being produced in a humble cowshed on Marley Farm in Kent.

The founder’s son, Sir Owen Aisher, then led Marley to national and international growth in the decades following the second world war.

The intervening decades since have seen Marley’s manufacturing facilities expand and product ranges extend from concrete to clay, together with a range of accessories, roofing batten and high performance underlay.

Daniel Redfern for Marley said: “We are delighted to celebrate Marley’s 100th anniversary this year. The milestone is testimony to the hard work, diligence, and innovating spirit of colleagues across the decades who have contributed to our collective and ongoing success.

“For any business to be successful for a century is a real achievement and we have managed this because we have continued to react to the market, understand what customers want, and create the system and product solutions that deliver high performing and beautiful roofscapes. 

“As we move into our next century of operation, Marley remains focussed on strategic progression, especially as sustainable solutions become more of a priority for everyone. A growing renewable technology package now complements our traditional clay and concrete tile ranges and fully integrated roofing system offer, underpinned by our industry-leading package of technical support, developed to assist the roofing industry for years to come.”
