Introductions – The Boss

Welcome to The Nest at John Richards new blog!

We will be introducing our little John Richards family to you one by one and I think it only right that we start with the boss.

Andrew (Andy) Richards 

Andy joined his father John in the family Land Rover business in 1973.   He worked with his father, learning all he could about early Land Rovers which became his passion.  He built land rovers to use both on & off road and his own trialling vehicle, becoming well known in the local community of Land Rover enthusiasts.  He accompanied his father on trips to Germany to buy Land Rovers. He also worked on the vehicles, stripping engines, rebuilding gearboxes, and doing anything else that was required to make their vehicles the best that they could offer to the public.  After the death of his father in 2004, Andy took full control of the firm assisted by his son Alistair (more on him later).  Not only does Andy have a passion for Land Rovers, but he loves his home county of Shropshire and the beauty of the surrounding countryside.  This has made him an ardent photographer of landscapes and he loves to spend many a happy hour, driving around Shropshire & nearby North Wales with his camera, ready to clamber up or down a hill to get that perfect shot. We’ll be posting some of Andy’s pictures at a later date.

Andy tweets as @JRs_partsonline and has a business Facebook page: John Richards.  The Land Rover website is John Richard Surplus & the eBay Shop completes the set!
