Berkeley International is a specialist in sourcing products worldwide.
Our specialist for bitumen John Eyton  
 
 We work with manufacturers and very specialised trading companies.
 Some of the senior managers are main speakers at Bitumen conferences.
 
There are many different grades of bitumen and you can see the specifications below.

Most requests are for 60/70 and 80/100 and 85/100

There are several different packing types.

  • used drums
  • refurbished drums
  • new drums
  • bitupacks
  • specialist bitumen tankers

Please look at the specifications below. If you have a request, please use the form at the bottom. Copy and send the request by email to John Eyton
