Richard began working within the groundworks and construction industry in 2004, training on the job as a groundworker for JT Cook & Son Ltd. Deciding to take the plunge into running his own business in 2011, he founded Richard Meakin Groundworks Ltd with one tractor, trailer and digger. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength, to where we are today… With a few more bits of machinery!
