For over fifty years Mexboro has been manufacturing high quality architectural cast stone and it is now able to offer a comprehensive range of columns and porticos. These units which are faithfully reproduced from classic designs will greatly enhance any building’s entrance, enliven any facade and will make an impressive feature in a landscape. They are all suitable for use in restoration and new build projects.

Skilled craftsmen use natural crushed aggregates and traditional hand finishing techniques to make the units that are virtually identical to quarried stone in appearance and texture, but at a fraction of the cost. In addition to our standard colour range a limitless number of colour and texture variations can be achieved, ensuring that the units compliment any existing building materials.

Mexboro offers various different pedestal, column head, architrave, cornice and dentil course units. All these units can be ‘mixed and matched’ to provide a very flexible system suitable for large-scale commercial sites and small residential projects alike. In addition to Mexboro’s standard range of columns and porticos the company will manufacture bespoke units to suit particular unique requirements.

Our columns, porticos and temples have been used in numerous prestigious new build and restoration projects in both the commercial and residential sector. As a member of the Concrete Society, Mexboro is proud to have been associated with the supply of cast stone for English Heritage, National Trust, the PSA and Ministry of Defence projects.
