Amey started as a quarry operator, founded in 1921 by William Charles Amey; it was initially based in Oxfordshire. In 1959,  Amey became a public company. A dredging branch was opened in Southampton, from where some 7 aggregate dredgers were managed.

Penfold Holdings  aquired Seaborne Aggregate Company Limited in 1964. Seaborne Aggregate Co Ltd became Amey Marine Ltd in 1969.  Between 1972 and 1989, the company was owned by Consolidated Gold Fields, and used the names Amey Roadstone and ARC. In 1974, the company bought Stephen Toulson & Sons. The company name changed again, to A.R.C.Marine Ltd, in1973 which was tidied up to ARC Marine Ltd. in 1986.  In 1989, Hanson purchased Amey Roadstone from Consolidated Gold Fields, returning the firm back to private ownership.

In 1999 the company saw another name change, to Hanson Aggregates Marine Limited, which name has thus far been retained by the new owners, Heidelberg Cement of Germany, who acquired the company in 2007.

From this time onwards, Amey focussed on the support services delivery sector, and continues to do so until today.
