It is always good to put a name to a face - so here we all are.
My grandad started the business in the 50’s then Dad started on his own as an Agricultural Ironmonger in 1961. I joined in 1991 after doing my degree in Aberystwyth Uni. It was supposed to be a temporary measure till I found another job, but almost three decades later I’m still here! We truly are a family business and have had to move with the times, it hasn’t been easy but we are still going and I’m really proud of taking the business forward.
Lezli has recently joined us as General Manager after a successful career in Systems and Quality Management. Lezli lives on a small holding locally and is the proud owner of a solid fuel Rayburn and not one but three woodburners , so is very experienced at burning !
