Our People

The best fleet and most modern IT systems in the world are valueless without the right people. At Jack Richards & Son, people are at the very forefront of what we do and how we behave as a business.

It is an ethos which has helped develop a team in which some members have been with the company for over 40 years, and in which father/son pairings go further than just Jack and Anthony Richards.

It speaks volumes that the loss of our founder and chairman, Jack Richards, in May 2014, was felt, not just by family and friends, but throughout the company, local community and transport industry at large. His memoirs, finished shortly before his death, tell the story of his gradual rise to become one of the UK’s best known hauliers. How, from leaving school at 13, ‘doing his bit’ in the war-time RAF at 18, he worked tirelessly and with real vision to achieve the success he came to enjoy – yet always acknowledging the support of others.

We shall not see his like again. The transport industry and commercial sectors it serves have changed out of all recognition from the world Jack Richards first inhabited. It speaks volumes for him however, and the team he had around him at the end of his life, that his business changed with the times and still highly regarded as a front-runner in technology, reliability and service. Today, the Jack Richards fleet is working harder than ever, and still more than justifies his proud claim to be ‘One of the best!’
