About Us


Close Working Relationships

Advanced Mini Piling Systems Ltd. is the result of a collaboration between two like-minded friends. Malcolm Noakes and Philip Weaving worked together for a large UK piling company – one of the early pioneers of ground engineering – in the early 1980s.

After working closely together for many years, sharing a high regard for quality and a committed work ethic, the two friends decided to go it alone, setting up their own company to provide piling and groundworks solutions throughout England and the Channel Islands.

Since being founded in 2005 Advanced Mini Piling Systems has established professional relationships with many building companies and subsidence specialists – we are even the piling contractor of choice for a number of the larger piling companies.

In 2019, with Malcolm’s son, Oliver on board, we decided to diversify and include a manufacturing facility to rebuild old piling machinery, testing new designs and technology we have developed ourselves. So successful was this venture that we now supply brand new piling machines, designed and built from scratch by ourselves, to other piling companies.

Meet the Team

A Wealth of Experience

Our office and manufacturing facility is in the Somerset countryside near the popular town of Frome. Basing ourselves in North Somerset makes us well placed to service Frome, Bath, Exeter and London while keeping our commuting distance short and carbon footprint low. We’re also able to enjoy the lovely local food, artisan produce and dog walks!

Working at a piling company is not the most glamorous of jobs. It is physically demanding, dirty and requires long hours of labour, so we greatly appreciate our employees who have made our company successful.

Our team of operatives is small, but specialist, all qualified and up to date with the latest safety and working qualifications. Safety is paramount on site. We constantly monitor and improve our safety standards with training and preventive measures.

Our team members tend to stick around – one has been with us for more than 30 years and one of our foremen has held his position with us for more than a decade.

In 2022 we started fabricating our own open-site self-propelled driven piling/drop hammer rig – the RPR DH10.3 – designed and manufactured from scratch on our site. We’re continuing to develop the technology we used in this machine, and working on more environmentally friendly products, including electric-powered piling machines.


It’s All in the Family
