The Group has been a family owned trading company for 92 years, and the current board of directors of 4, still has 3 family members.
Trade started following the end of WW 1 when James Leavesley Snr bought a few small items of equipment from the UK army, and sold them locally from his home in Alrewas, Staffordshire. Further purchases and sales followed, and over the years gathered momentum, scale and variety.
The core business of used vehicle, and plant & machinery trading continues but group and associated operations now extend to approximately 12 primary UK sites, several overseas sites, and turnover of £20 million. This has been enabled through substantial investment in property, associated and ancillary products and services, and our ability to handle multi national contracts with a personal service and small focused teams.
