HISTORY

Our History

Family Run Business Since 1980

A R Richards is a family-run business, founded in 1980 by Alyn Raymond Richards, Anthony Raymond Richards and Sheilagh Richards.

The Agricultural and Plant hire contracting started out with an MF595, a trailed class Jaguar 60 Chopper and 2 silage trailers bought from Mr Westley Key, the farmer Tony Richards worked for since school and who also 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 by Tony and Sheilagh along with their children Sam, Adam and Andrew.

Whilst based in Norton in Hales, as part of the farming community, the company grew. This enabled A R Richards Ltd to recycle inert waste, supply some farming building merchants’ stock, such as pipes and construction work, get involved in agriculture and plant hire contracting, and also manage the sister company T.S. Pumping.

As years went by, Andrew Richards realised there was an opening within the market to expand on the removal of waste and builders merchants. In 2008, a second site just over 4 acres was purchased, ‘Warrant Hangar, Tern Hill’ which opened to trade as an MRF and builders merchant at the beginning of 2009. This enabled the business to grow and introduce skip hire, Euro Bin operation and haulage.

As the business grew at a rapid pace, Warrant Hangar soon became used to its full capacity. In 2014, it became apparent that a 19.2-acre site (Greenvale UK) which is just a mile away from the Warrant Hangar site, was due to be put on the market.

A R Richards Ltd approached Greenvale with an offer, which was accepted. The new site, ‘Bensite’, Warrant Road was purchased in 2015.

Although Bensite was the ideal premises to expand the business, a lot of communication had to be made between A R Richards, the Environment Agency and Council to enable the company to be able to run with their bespoke permit.

In February 2017, Bensite opened its gates to trade, which is currently taking in general, household, hazardous and farm waste as well as stocking a continually growing building merchants and Euro Bins.

Most recently we have been awarded our ISO:9001, 14001 & 45001 for our continued works on site.
