The company is headed up by Les Lord and Russ Downing who have been in the industry since leaving school. The duo originally met back in 1988 working on a large scale projects where they learnt the tricks of the trade and honed in on their skills.
In the early days, Les and Russ worked on a whole host of large scale projects which saw them travel Europe taking them to Disneyland Paris and Germany, gaining knowledge of different countries working practices and procedures.
They soon realised they had the skills, expertise and a mutual interest in rendering to launch their own company promoting machine application and modernising the whole process. Lord and Downing was born in 1995 – offering their services to large building companies initially as subcontractors.
The rest they say is history!
Lord and Downing now employ a number of highly skilled teams based in Braithwell, Rotherham and have carried out multi million pound contracts in the public and private sector.
These projects have included working on Schools, Prisons, Hotels, Private Housing and most major house builders developments throughout the country.
The Lord and Downing team are official PFT trainers and often get called upon to train other trainers alongside working closely with insurance companies to offer advice on claims and the best way to move projects forward.
The company is proud to be one of the longest established machine rendering contractors in the country with a wealth of skills and knowledge rivalled by none.
