A very long established family firm, now in its 3rd century, with records dating back to 1791. The company is still run today with family member, Mr. Richard Ansell at the Helm.
Richard’s background is very similar to that of all past family members in that he started work in his school holidays, working with the men on site progressing to college, achieving ONC. and HNC. in building and surveying. Richard then took up a trade and served an apprenticeship in brickwork and stone-work, working under the most senior craftsmen of the era.
Tradition in this family business plays a very important role and apprentices are still trained in most trades so that the companies age old traditions are continued and not lost. As a result we now have a very dedicated and loyal workforce.
