Year Founded:
1890

Hodgson & Hodgson has been trading since 1890. It was first incorporated in 1915 under the ownership of brothers William and Arthur Hodgson in Nottingham. After the deaths of the founders, the Company was owned and managed through a family trust up until the mid 1970's, when it was subject to a management buy-out.

By the late 1970's Hodgson & Hodgson had become one of the leading thermal insulation fabricators and had a thriving contract installation operation. Under the 'Thermos' brand name, which they still own UK rights to today, the Company manufactured cylinder jackets. They also supplied component insulation packages to the white goods, automotive and railway industries.

In 1992 the Company was subject to a buy-in by three of the current shareholders and executives, all of whom had worked for many years with a major mineral fibre supplier.

Over the last decade, the Hodgson & Hodgson's business has been strengthened and expanded by a the acquisition of a number of Companies, each specialising in different fields. In 2001 the Group became the single trading unit that it is today.
