About Us

The company name ‘Exescodo’ is derived from the founders’ initial employment position, and to those who know of it, hopefully reminds of one of the U.K’s premier Architectural Precasters of it’s time.

Originally apprenticed by Empire Stone & Company Ltd of Narborough, Leicestershire, in their drawing office. The ‘es’ ‘co’ ‘do’ part of the company name comes from the words – Empire Stone, Company and Drawing Office. The ‘Ex‘ prefix – well, that’s where it all started!

Empire Stone & Company Ltd was founded in 1900 and sadly ceased to trade in 1994, just 6 years short of their centenary. Over the years they were responsible for some truly fantastic projects including many of the original city centre Burtons Menswear and Marks & Spencer stores, culminating in the supply and installation of the precast units to the MI6 Building at Vauxhall Cross, London, which features in many of the James Bond films.
