Company History

Since the 1850s, Singleton Birch Ltd has been quarrying Lincolnshire chalk and working to establish an impeccable reputation with our customers and stakeholders. Singleton Birch Ltd is a company with a proud past and a very bright future. The company was established in 1815 and is named after the founder William Singleton Birch, who was a minerals merchant. Since our founding, we have continued to grow, becoming a global supplier of lime products and services. 

In 2022, Singleton Birch became part of the MLC family of businesses, a global supplier of high-quality products and technical services related to lime. MLC and Singleton Birch share a similar mission and vision, which focuses on using the essential mineral lime to support the evolving needs of society, with an unwavering commitment to safety, sustainability, and service. Our trusted brands, leadership, and availability of offerings remains unchanged. However, our new ownership expands our capabilities to serve customers worldwide while driving growth and innovation.
