About Us

Potton started as a family run business in 1964 and was acquired by the Kingspan Group in 2006. Our traditional ethos, pride in our workmanship and the high quality standards and customer care that started with the company remain at the heart of everything we do. Every year over 14,000 people choose to build their dream home.

Many of our people have been with us for over thirty years and in some parts of the company, two generations of the same family work side by side, crafting sustainably-sourced timber into your home with an attention to detail and quality that marks Potton out as the UK’s market leaders.

Our team take real pride in their work – so much so, they even sign every frame as it leaves our head office. It’s that pride that shines through in every area of our business.

Our planning experts ensure your designs are in line with local guidelines and will be readily approved so your build can go ahead.
