Colprovia Ltd. is listed in the RCHRailway Clearing House 1938 Handbook of Stations as having a business at Kidderminster accessed via the British Sugar Corporation sidings at Foley park, with no further information as to the nature of their business.
Colprovia Roads Inc. hold several USA patents, dating back to 1930, for various road making techniques, so they may have had a UK subsiduary extracting gravel for road making from the gravel pits south of the Beet Sugar Factory.
