Company Archive Exhibition

We were delighted to be able to celebrate over 130 years of business with a unique exhibition showcasing the Company’s history and the diverse range of successful projects we have completed over the years.
Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP showed his support for Houlton’s achievement by officially opening the exhibition at the ARC building in March 2011 which was attended by more than 50 of the region’s most influential business personalities, including Lord Mayor of Hull David Gemmell.
After his appointment as Non-Executive Director to the board, Thomas Houlton (the fifth generation of the Houlton family) collated and documented the Company's archives putting together the exhibition to commemorate the people and projects that have made Houlton one of the longest standing and most respected construction firms in the region.

“ Houlton has produced some outstanding buildings throughout the years and it has been rascinating for the team to research the Company archives to learn more about the technicalities and stories behind some iconic projects. The family is extremely proud of the achievements across the generations and we are delighted to be able to celebrate these with the current team. Houlton was founded as a family business and these values are still central to the Company's approach to our clients, employees and the wider community.  ” Thomas Houlton, Non-Executive Director of Geo Houlton & Sons (Holdings) Ltd.
In addition to the exhibition, our recent project to restore the Charter House bell tower in Hull also produced a piece of history as we were presented with a copy of the invoice for one of Houlton’s very early projects on the site. The figures might have changed since the invoice was issued all the way back in 1887 but Houlton’s approach to quality and delivery certainly hasn’t.
