About Us

Since it was founded in the early 1970s, DB Group has been a pioneer in the construction industry.
It was originally established to provide specialist sands to industry for cement testing and fuse manufacturing and we are still exporting sands all over the world today.


Our boundless passion for innovation runs through the entire history of DB Group. In the early 1990s we brought the waterproofing product, PUDLO, into our range and spent many years advancing its formula to get it just right. But an exceptional product alone wasn’t enough for us, so we added an industry-leading service and warranty to it to make it unbeatable. PUDLO has since been used in various projects around the world, from the Royal Albert Hall to the Dubai Fountains, and we’ve broadened our range to provide a complete waterproofing envelope for our customers’ ever-growing needs.

Sustainability runs through our core and we know how important it is to reduce our environmental impact in everything we do. That’s why, in 2015 we introduced Cemfree ultra-low carbon binder – a complete game-changer for the construction industry that achieves dramatic carbon savings of up to 80% in concrete. This innovative technology was developed in-house to ensure every detail was exactly as it should be. It has since won multiple awards and continues to excite and impress the industry in equal measure.

Integrity and experience are vitally important to us, not just in product manufacturing, but also in our contracting division, MPS Concrete Solutions. It provides outstanding industry expertise in various applications, including concrete repair, jointing solutions and waterproofing installations. This industrious division of DB Group has grown significantly since it was founded in 2013 and continues to evolve and expand according to industry demands.

Progression and quality underpin everything we do at DB Group. We spend time listening to and working with our customers, pushing ourselves to continuously innovate and improve upon the products and services that we offer. This collaborative approach feeds our relentless ambition to stay at the top of our game and makes us the enduring, credible organisation that we are today.
