About Us

Whitehead Contracting originally started as an Agricultural Contracting business back in 1982. This swiftly developed into highway grass cutting for Kent and Essex Highways and since then the business has greatly expanded so now we are responsible for grass cutting and other related works across the whole of the south eastern half of the country, this includes working on major motorways and trunk roads including the whole of the M25.

Our fleet of modern vehicles and equipment have kept paced with the advances in technology; they are not only efficient but environmentally friendly and are operated to an exacting standard by our highly trained and committed operators. Our fleet of machinery is regularly inspected and serviced to high standards in our extensive purpose built workshop facility and by mobile servicing, to maintain its full working capacity.

We pride ourselves on our good relations and co-ordination with officers from other companies we work for. We work hard at listening to our diverse client base and responding to their individual needs and have established a good reputation with these companies over the years, by forming these partnerships we have promoted mutual co-operation. We are committed to health and safety awareness and ongoing training.

Although Vegetation maintenance is our main activity, we have developed a full range of other related services to compliment our businesses. As a few examples of this is Pest control, tunnel and sign cleansing and we are fully licensed herbicide applicators; we are involved in highway drainage and a list of other services offered can be found on this site. We operate a wide range of works from rural to urban, including high speed road networks. We maintain a strict environmental focus.

All the services we provide are backed up by comprehensive insurance cover to safe guard employees, clients and other users.
