Company History

We are based in the village of Compton, Berkshire England.  

The business was established by Alan Wallis MRCVS in Lancashire. On Alan’s retirement in 1999 we relocated onto the site of the Institute for Animal Health at Compton and Ridgeway Biological’s current Managing Director, Tim Wallis took the reigns.  Alan has been producing emergency vaccines for over 30 years and now acts as a veterinary consultant.

From 1999-2008 the company was based at the Institute for Animal Health, (now re-named The Pirbright Institute).

In 2008 we move into a new purpose built facility on the outskirts of the village.


Our name is derived from The Ridgeway, Britain’s oldest road, which passes across the back of our site. The Ridgeway is 137 km (85 miles) long, much of it following the ancient chalk ridge route used by prehistoric man. It runs from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Overton Hill, near Avebury in Somerset.
