Biographical history

The company, known as Betts, dates back to 1933 when Andrew Bett founded a small haulage company delivering bricks to council house building sites in Dundee. His three sons, John, Albert and Stewart, registered the business in 1946 which by then was mainly involved in building council homes and shops for the former Dundee Corporation.
