Customer Testimonial

"Hi, I just thought I would drop you a note to thank you for the speedy and very professional way your team handled what could have been a very difficult situation for us here at the Royal Oak Appleby, over the last couple of days. Your communication was excellent and I have no doubt you went out of your way to minimise the disruption here outside our pub, doing what you said you would do in the time scale you said you would achieve. We have had loads of disruption on this road over the last 24 months with different contractors none of which handled the situation anywhere near as  well as your team, so many thanks from all the 30 staff at the Royal Oak Appleby."Kyle & Jan MacRaeOwners

DSD and MacRebur

DSD are proud to be one of the first companies working with MacRebur and their revolutionary new road surface 'Plasmac'.Plasmac is an asphalt road material that uses recycled waste plastic instead of bitumen. It was developed by Toby McCartney and friends Nick Burnett and Gordon Reid, who all live nearby in Eaglesfield, Dumfries and Galloway.

Tests show Plasmac to be 60% stronger than the current British standard asphalt - increasing the road lifespan with less potholes and surface damage.

It also uses local waste plastics such as bottles and bags, which reduces carbon emissions and the impact on the environment.

Other benefits include lower raw material costs, reduced road maintenance costs and waste plastic disposal costs.

The idea caught the eye of Sir Richard Branson earlier this year as MacRebur were named winners of the Virgin Media Business Boom Competition.
