Welcome to our Barrow upon Soar site

Located in Leicestershire, our Barrow upon Soar site is home to our renowned Thistle Plasters.

Our Barrow upon Soar site has been running since 1992 and is the largest and most technologically advanced of its kind in the world. Known locally as just ‘Barrow’, it’s the production site for our Thistle plasters.

Much of Britain has been built with British gypsum. It’s the vital raw material at the heart of our plaster and plasterboard. This material is mined, milled and made in Britain at plants such as our Barrow upon Soar site.
