Since its inception in 1934 Wykamol has been at the forefront of innovation and research and development within the building preservation market.
Indeed the company's name is a derivation of Wykehamist (a Winchester academic), where the founder Stanley Richardson was challenged to develop a practical and commercial solution for the eradication of death watch beetle within Winchester Cathedral.
From those humble beginnings the company has now developed into one of the UK’s largest specialist manufacturer and supplier of building preservation and damp/waterproofing solutions for the preservation market/specialist contractors and builders merchants/online supplies, which now includes the only cavity drain membrane manufacturing plant in the UK making a wide range of BBA certified cavity drain membranes and accessories.
In keeping with Winchesters status as one of the leading green energy academic institutions, Wykamol are now embracing solar energy across their two manufacturing plants with the the installation of solar photovoltaic panels, sufficient to save over 62 tonnes of CO2 emmissions per annum.
For an every day life comparison this means:-
- Almost 2 million cups of tea per year.
- Approximately 190,000 miles per year.
- Nearly 500 cubic metres of polar ice.
The above is just the start of the green energy commitment from Wykamol.
