About the employer

The original Milford site was at Cardigan Road, but only around one third of the current size and the original five employees worked out of a portacabin office with one Romney style storage building, one second hand Leyland truck, a second hand Sherpa van and one forklift.The Company grew steadily throughout the 1980’s and moved into lightside products and then timber – the intention being to provide the customer with a “one stop shop” for all requirements.The Cardigan Road site expanded over the years as additional land was acquired and new storage and office buildings were constructed. The delivery fleet expanded steadily as indeed did the number of employees.
