Established in 1968 by Howel Richards at the tender age of 21, the first truck purchased was a Bedford TK for 80.00. The companys first order was a factory move for Christie Tyler of Bridgend.
Due to the success of the move, Christie Tyler offered Howel a contract to become their sole haulage provider - Howel accepted. The company quickly grew, new vehicles were purchased and extra drivers were employed to cover all of their haulage requirements.
In the mid 70s, the company diversified into general haulage and began transporting goods such as consumer electronics, tissue and timber. The introduction of larger vehicles and trailers resulted in the company moving from its original premises in Treoes to an industrial unit in Brackla, Bridgend where it still remains.
