Introductions – The Son

Alistair (Ali) Richards

Ali joined the business in 1995 and was just as passionate about Land Rovers as his father Andy.  Of course Ali’s knowledge was mainly on later models & not so much the old ex-military models that Andy had ‘cut his teeth’ on, but he grasped the intricacies of the Land Rover engine with both hands working on different models, until it was obvious other parts of the business were taking up so much time as to make it impossible to work on vehicles manually any more.  Ali doesn’t have an awful lot to do with the giftware side apart from doing his bit towards packing.  His passions are firmly set on the vehicle parts side & he spends hours checking & listing items on both our main vehicle parts website John Richards or our eBay Shop JohnRichardsSurplus.  He also deals with our regular Land Rover customers at our retail outlet face to face & on the phone, and he’s in charge of ordering vehicle parts from our wholesale suppliers.

Ali’s other passion is sport, primarily football, but he takes an interest in most sports and the radio will be on in both the workshop & the office when any major sporting event is taking place.
