Wavin UK has grown and developed through acquisitions and organic growth, to become one of the largest drainage manufacturers in the world, with a fittingly cast-iron reputation for quality, technical knowledge and customer service. Hepworth’s drainage pedigree was forged in 1858 when Hepworth Iron Company Ltd was founded to mine iron and later produce sanitary pipes and fire bricks. 

The foundations for the company and products our customers experience today were laid down in the 1980s and 1990s, when the first generation of fast fire roller kiln technology was introduced. Now much refined and developed it is this process that delivers our brand standard of Fired to perfection'. In 2005 Hepworth was acquired by Wavin. An alliance which underpins our commitment to supplying clay drainage systems and terracotta products of the highest calibre, the lowest possible carbon footprint and with absolute standards compliance.
