John founded the company in 1946 and with great entrepreneurial spirit grew the business into a formidable company renown in the heavy haulage industry. Over the years he was Chairman of the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and went on to become the Master of The Worshipful Company of Carmen, a livery company in the City of London.


John will be missed not just by his family but the many staff, both past and present, who had the pleasure of working for him.


In 2014 the family sold the company to R Swain & Sons Ltd of Rochester in Kent who continue to invest and grow the business’.
