A.R. Richards is a family run business, founded in 1980 by Alyn Raymond Richards, Anthony Raymond Richards and Sheilagh Richards.
The Agriculture and plant hire contracting started out with a MF595, a trailed class Jaguar 60 Chopper and 2 silage trailers bought from the farmer Tony Richards was working for and who became their first customer.
Alyn and Tony Richards prided themselves on getting to know and understand the local farmers, providing a personal touch that earned their loyalty for years to come.
After the loss of Alyn Richards in 2002 the company was incorporated as A.R. Richards Ltd. Tony, Sheilagh, Sam Adam and Andrew now operate A.R. Richards from three sites. Cobscott Farm, Norton-In-Hales is the base for the Agricultural and Plant Hire contracting as well as the sister business of T. S. Pumping.
Warrant Hanger at Tern Hill is home to our Skip Hire & Euro Bin Operation. The newly acquired Bensite also at Tern Hill will be open early 2016 as our new much larger Materials Recycling Facility open for traders wanting to off-load waste or purchase aggregates and building materials.
