SPI Piling was established over 17 years ago, has built up a considerable portfolio of successful projects and now leads the way as one of the largest Steel Sheet Piling companies in the UK.

Steel Pile Installation Ltd was founded by Eric Livermore in 1999, he found his first rig, "the Zepplin" in Germany. Once purchased, it was transported back to the UK and underwent a major overhaul. It came out re-liveried in the SPI Piling Ltd colours we know today. Photos on this page show the rig as it was when purchased, its arrival with the SPI logo and livery and out on one of our first contracts. This was a job in Manchester City Centre and you can see the Zepplin tracking round the narrow streets, which were quiet tight in places, so mats had to be placed under the tracks of the rig so as not to damage the road surface.

A E Yates Group bought the company back in 2006 from its original founder Mr Eric Livermore, to enhance the presence of the group in this specialist subcontract area. Steel Pile Installations then went on to purchase Appleton Piling Ltd in 2012, further enhancing its portfolio, merging the names of the two businesses to become SPI Appleton Ltd, It became clear to the directors following this name change that the business was repeatedly being referred to by the majority of its well established customer base as SPI Piling, and so the Directors decided to rebrand the business to what we are well known as today, SPI Piling Ltd. Fresh New Corporate imagery was also rebranded at this stage to better suit the group of businesses and in particularly AEYates to the branding we see here today.

SPI Piling Ltd have managed to adapt to the changing environment, and is managing to ride out the current cliamate by its positive approach to any situation which is helped by a steady, well trained and experienced workforce.

To further enhance our position as one of the UK's leading Piling Companies we have also managed to achieve the ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 Accreditations back in 2009

We have also added for historical interest some case studies from our early days.
