James Clarke started working for the family tarmacing business near Chester 25 years ago. Miles Macadam was founded by his father in 1970, and they are both still going strong today.

James now has his own surfacing business called Clarke Contracting, which specialises in innovative surfacing systems in Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales, specifically designed to provide an extremely cost-effective alternative to new tarmac or concrete overlays. His products are widely used on deteriorated farm and estate roads, commercial sites, and more recently equestrian centres. Within the range is also a highly effective pothole repair system with the incorporation of rapid curing polymers, and a lovely bonded gravel system that is designed for the residential market in Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales, and greatly enhances the appearance of a residence drive and parking area.
