Company History

History 1st Block

Johnson Poole and Bloomer is an independent multidisciplinary engineering and scientific consultancy  operating in several closely related and complementary areas - Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Contamination, Surveying and Mining and Quarrying.

Established in 1844 by Henry Johnson, and born in the mining industry, it continues to offer in-depth specialist skills through its varied engineering, geological, environmental and property disciplines, all helping to address the many issues raised by the redevelopment of land, the development of mines and quarries, the disposal of waste, and the environmental imperatives introduced by such activities.

The firm operates throughout the United Kingdom and beyond, from its offices in Glasgow, Brierley Hill and Cardiff. Johnson Poole and Bloomer is committed to the client and strives to provide an independent effective service of the highest quality. The company offers objective advice and practical solutions based upon well founded technical judgements drawn from over a century and half of experience.


History 2nd Block

Founded in 1844 the firm is justifiably proud of its long heritage and wealth of experience. The history of Johnson Poole & Bloomer is intimately linked with that of the British coal mining industry, and the development of applied geology and environmental science as professional disciplines. Our story is one of early pioneers with enthusiasm and imagination, of triumphs and the occasional disaster, of success and innovation.

The firm was created over 175 years ago when Henry Johnson of Dudley set himself up in business on his 21st birthday. Within days he was hard at work for numerous clients, and from then on he never looked back, taking on assistants to cope with an increasing workload. Through successive generations of partners, directors and skilled staff the firm has sought to maintain Henry Johnson's high reputation and professional values.
